How to Register

A registration medical with the healthcare assistant will then be arranged for you. It is essential that you attend for this appointment and should you fail to do so without prior notification, you will be unable to join the practice. You should bring your completed forms with you as well as identification if you are asked to provide this. The practice reserves the right to refuse an application to join our practice list.
