To register we ask that you come into the practice in person and our reception staff will be happy to help you. If you have an NHS card it is helpful if you can bring this along but it is not essential. We do need to know the name and address of your last GP so that we can request your medical records. You will need proof of your home address which must be within our catchment area and also some ID (Passport, Drivers License etc).
To register your baby please come into Reception and one of our Reception staff will get you to complete the necessary forms. You will need your baby’s birth certificate. It will speed up registration if you download and complete BOTH of the forms below for each person wishing to register. One is a registration form and the other is a new patient information form.
We also ask that you do not arrive to register after 530pm to allow time for the registration process to be completed.
If required you can also send your completed forms by email to the practice. Our admin email address is GG-UHB.GP43044@nhs.net. We ask that you do NOT use this email address for any other purpose unless requested to do so by a GP or member of staff.
New Patient Checkups
After registering with us you will be offered a new patient appointment with one of our nurses. The nurse will ask you some questions about your your health and check your blood pressure, height and weight. Please bring along a fresh urine sample to this appointment. A white topped bottle for your sample can be collected from our reception desk.
Please note: it can often take some time to transfer your medical records from your last GP. If you are on several medications you need to make an appointment with a GP so that your medications can be reviewed and issued. Please bring along a list of your repeat medications (right side of your most recent prescription form).
Download the forms
