The Practice welcomes new patients. When you register with us, we will request details of your past medical problems so as to avoid delay while we wait for your records to reach us. Hand written records can take anything up to three months to arrive at the practice. The Practice now has the facility to transfer your notes electronically from GP to GP as long as your old practice is set up for this facility.
Register before you need us:
Many new patients only register with us when they have a medical problem. We strongly recommend that you register when you move into the Practice area (please use the map below to make sure your are in the boundaries to join the Practice). This advice applies particularly to students who often forget to register with a doctor when they arrive at college.
At the time of registration, patients are encouraged to see the practice nurse before consulting the doctor so as much information regarding your past medical history can be obtained in that appointment.
A new patient check is a good time to look at general health issues in your life such as healthy lifestyle, reducing risk of future disease, looking at illnesses that have occurred in your family, etc.
Part of our process for accepting new patients is the requirement to have a “New Patient Health Check” for which you must ring the surgery on 0151 327 1391 to book.
How to Register:
- Complete a GMS1 Family Doctor registration form for each family member
- All adults (over 16yrs) are required to bring completed forms to us, in person, along with photographic proof of identity and a current, last 3months, utility bill.
- If registering a child under 16yrs please bring their red book or birth certificate. Please allow one week for registrations to be completed, and ensure you have enough medication, if required, from your current GP.
If you are not sure whether you live within our boundary, please use our interactive boundary map or speak to our reception team before submitting your forms.
While you are registered with us we will do everything we can to support you in taking care of your health for now and the future.
