Please attend the surgery to book a registration appointment. You will need to provide a form of photographic ID and proof of address, ideally a utility bill dated within the last three months and if possible your NHS number. You will be given forms to complete and bring to your appointment.
All new patients are offered a routine health check with a healthcare assistant. The health check consists of a brief history for diabetes, asthma, COPD, heart disease and includes various medical checks such as blood pressure, weight, waist measurement, height, urine test and breathing assessment, if appropriate. The health check takes about 10-20 minutes of your time.
You have the right to:
- Be offered a health check when you join a GP practice for the first time.
- Ask for a health check if you are between 16 and 74 and have not seen your GP for the last three years.
- Be offered a health check once a year in your GP's surgery, or at your own home if you are housebound.
