We have an open list and everyone is welcome in general practice.
We will ask for some information to help us register you, i.e, details of previous GP, previous address or proof of ID but do not worry if this cannot be provided, you can still register. You will be required to have :
- New Patient Health Check (to be booked at reception)
- Urine Health Screen Test - The urine tests usually screens for blood sugar + proteins etc. which may show signs of infection or diabetes. These tests also screen for alcohol, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, marijuana, cocaine, PCP, and opioids (narcotics). After a drug test identifies these problems, the doctor can help you start a treatment plan.
- Hep Screening - You will need to give a blood sample for this screen test. No fasting required.
Anyone who wishes to join the practice is given a new patient registration pack. The practice manager will check that all relevant details are present and correct and that we have the name and address of your previous GP. This will enable us to trace your medical records from your previous practice. If you have only just entered the country, then the date of entry & country of birth are required. All patients applying to join the practice will be asked to bring a valid photographic form of identification such as their passport.
All new patients are required to undertake a new patient health check with our practice nurse on registering.
