We are very happy to take on new patients from within our practice area. There are some simple forms to fill in which can be done at the reception desk of any of our surgeries.
If you know your NHS number or have an NHS card it will speed up the process. We will also need to know the name and address of your previous doctor. We run personal lists on the Roseland which means you will be allocated your own doctor. However, you are free to choose which doctor you see and you may be seen at any site. We would ask that you try and see the same doctor for the continuous care of a particular problem, where possible.
Due to the unpredictable nature of illness there may be times when you are asked to see one of the other doctors in the practice for expediency sake. However, as a general rule we try and maintain continuity with one doctor so you can build up confidence and trust in your GP.
If you are registering and have an appointment to see the doctor at the same time it would be helpful if you could turn up 10 minutes before your appointment to complete the paperwork. Alternatively you can download a registration form, fill it in at home and bring it with you to save time.
If you would like to register but do not need to see the doctor for the moment you can submit your forms by email (email@example.com) or post. All registration forms need to be submitted with a completed New Patient Questionnaire which is available for adults or for under 12s. If you are a visitor and need to see a doctor you can sign on as a temporary resident and temporary registration forms are available within our download section at the bottom of this page.
Please remember to bring photo identification with you, i.e your driving licence showing your home address.
All new permanent patients are offered a New Patient Check with the practice nurse when they first join the practice.
