GMS1 Form for New Patient Registration
Please print and complete both forms before coming to the surgery in person with proof of residence and photo ID.
All patients who are registered at the practice can make an appointment to see any of the doctors. However when you register you can indicate who you want your ‘usual doctor’ to be. We suggest that it is better for you to see your ‘usual doctor’ if possible, since this leads to better communication , less duplication and allows the development of a good doctor /patient relationship which is very important. This is particularly true for patients with complex and long standing medical problems. It is also often beneficial for members of the same family to be treated by the same doctor. There are of course situations when you may want to see a doctor of the same sex and this will be accommodated whenever possible. Please be aware that if you request an urgent appointment, you may not always be able to see your ‘usual doctor’.
According to the (2004) GP contract, patients are registered with the practice, but may express their preference for a particular GP.
Please Note: In the event of violent or abusive 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.
