If you would like to register with the practice and live within the practice area please contact the surgery for a registration pack. Photo ID will be required in order to register. You will be asked to complete a New Patient Questionnaire and offered a New Patient Health Check when you join the practice.
When you register with the practice you will be nominally registered with one of the doctors. This does not mean you have to see this doctor. You can ask to see the doctor of your choice for any consultation. If you have already discussed a problem with one of the doctors it would seem sensible to try to see that doctor for follow up. For a new problem, please feel free to see any of the doctors.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

OUR RESPONSIBILITIES TO YOU
We are committed to giving you the best possible service. This will be achieved by working together. You will be treated as a partner in the care and attention you receive.
You will be treated as an individual and will be given courtesy and respect at all times, irrespective of your ethnic origin, religious belief, personal attributes or the nature of your health problems.
Following discussion, you will receive the most appropriate care, given by suitably qualified people. No care or treatment will be given without your informed consent.
We run an appointment system in this practice. You will be given a time at which the doctor or nurse hopes to be able to see you.
We will try to ensure that you are seen on time but some consultations take longer than others and we have no way of knowing about this in advance. If there is a patient with an emergency or a serious problem we will give them priority. When there is a prolonged delay an explanation will be given by the receptionist.
We will provide you with information about how to make suggestions or complaints about the care we offer. We want to improve services; we will therefore welcome any comments you have.
We will try to answer the phone promptly and to ensure that there are sufficient staff to do this.
Results of investigations are important. You will normally be told how you will be informed of results. If you do not know, please check with reception to see whether you should make an appointment.
We will give you full information about the services we offer. Every effort will be made to ensure that you receive information which directly affects your health and the care being offered.
It is our job to give you treatment and advice. In the interest of your health it is important for you to understand all the information given to you.
The practice will offer patients advice and information on: steps they can take to promote good health and avoid illness and self-help which can be undertaken without reference to a doctor in the case of minor ailments.

Follow our lifestyle advice for best results.
Treat all our staff courteously.
Note that if anyone threatens, abuses or assaults us we may inform the police and, acting within NHS guidelines opt to remove that patient from the practice list.
