How do I register?

To register you will need to visit your chosen surgery in person and complete a registration form.  You may also be asked to provide:

  • Proof of your address (e.g. bank statement, electric or phone bill)
  • Photo ID (Driving Licence or Passport)
  • NHS number – Don’t worry if you don’t have this but do take it along if you do.
  • Very Important: – make sure everyone in the house is registered at a new GP Surgery including any children.


What happens if I do not register with a new practice by the Friday 13 December 2019?

If you do not register you will be allocated to a practice close to where you live and we will write to you with the details of your new practice.  This is to ensure that you have continued access to a GP Surgery.  If you are not happy with the practice you are allocated to, you still have the choice to register with different practice after 31 January 2020.
