Please contact the surgery on 01935 850225 or call in so we can let you have all the relevant registration forms. We can only accept patients within our allocated area so please check with the surgery for further information about whether you live within this area. New patients are placed on the list of the doctor in whose area they live. Patients may see any doctor of their choice when visiting the surgery.
If you wish to, you may print off the registration form and health questionnaire below, fill them out and bring them in with you on your first visit to the practice.
We are Dispensing Doctors Surgery and we are able to dispense medicines that are prescribed to our patients. Only certain patients are eligible to receive dispensing services and unfortunately we cannot offer dispensing services to a patient who lives within one mile of a local pharmacy (as the crow flies). This is an NHS regulation.
Summary Care Records
When you register within the NHS you will also be given a Summary Care Record. This project allows some basic details about your medical record to be held on a national computer available to doctors in surgeries and hospitals throughout England. At present this will be name, date of birth, address and also allergies and recent medication. We have insisted that, if any additional information such as medical history is to be added, it would only be done after further consultation. There are theoretical benefits to such a system in that, if you are taken ill anywhere in the country, doctors caring for you can check for medication and allergy problems before treating you. Some people are not happy with the principle of more data being held about them and there is an option to stop your name being included. If you wish you can opt out of having a Summary Care record, by going to the following link www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/
