Registering with the Practice
Registering with the practice
You will need to bring your medical card if you have one.
All patients aged 16 and over will need 2 of the following documents:
Proof of Identity
- Passport or photographic driving license.
- Birth or marriage certificate if you do not have the above documents.
Proof of Address
Proof that you have been living there for 6 months and still currently living there:
- Utility bill or council tax statement or mortgage statement: one dated 6 months or older and one dated within the last 3 months of the date of registration.
- Tenancy agreement or letter from solicitor or estate agent: if you recently bought a house.
Please note children under 16 registering with parents/guardians will need only proof of identity.
If you do not have one of the above as you are living with a relation then a bill in their name is sufficient along with a letter from the bill payer to clarify you do live at that address. You must also bring a proof of identity.
If you have just come into the UK we will need proof that you intend to work or study in the UK:
- Work Permit or supporting letter from your employer or the education provider.
You may be offered to make an appointment to see the practice nurse for a New Patient Health Check which will include recording your weight, height and blood pressure and also to discuss your medical history, medication you are taking and any allergies you may have.
If you have an NHS medical card, please bring this along with you at registration.
Please note that in the event of violent or abuse behaviour by a patient to doctors, nurses, any member of staff or any person present on Practice premises, we have the right to remove the patient from the premises. If necessary the Police may be involved and we may request immediate removal of the patient from the Practice list.
