All new patients have to complete two separate forms when they register with a GP. One of these forms is specifically designed by the practice and the patient is invited to complete personal details about themselves ie family history, previous medical history, medication, etc. This serves to familiarise the new GP with past medical history about the patient, until the previous notes arrive at the surgery. (This can sometimes take quite a few weeks.) The other form is the GPR that is the standard registration form from the Health Board.
New patients who are on medication are invited to attend the practice nurse for a health check. This gives us an opportunity to do basic health checks and any other necessary checks. The GPR form can be downloaded below.
Please download both forms if you wish to register, complete as much as you can, and bring it to the Practice receptionist., or alternatively you can complete the online pre-registration form.
Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. We may also ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy below and why we ask for this).
Although we cover a large area, this is mainly for the benefit of our existing patients who move house but may wish to remain with the practice. We advise new patients to register with a doctor whose practice is near where they live. This is for the patient’s benefit as it should prove more convenient. The practice retains the right to refuse to accept a patient, unless directed to do so by the Health Board.
If you change your name, address or telephone number please inform the receptionist. Failure to do this may mean letters from the hospital or the practice may not reach you. This could lead to you missing appointments or even being removed from the doctor’s list, by the Health Board, as they may have no knowledge of your new address and assume you have moved from the area.
This has happened on a number of occasions, leading to difficulties in obtaining practice records and other information
