Register with us as a New Patient

How to Register

New patients must live within our practice boundary to be able to register with us – We accept new patients from Woodingdean. We are unable to accept patients who live outside this area. If in doubt, please check with Reception. Please click on our boundary map:

If you live within our practice area please come into the reception area and ask for a registration pack. Alternatively you can download the necessary forms to register with the practice below.

You do not need proof of address, immigration status, ID or an NHS number to register. We will, however, request that two forms of identification are produced if possible; one should be photographic, and one must contain your address. This is to help to facilitate the registration process.

Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. It would also be useful to have details of any repeat medications you are being prescribed by your current GP.

Patients have the right to choose which doctor they are registered with – please inform the receptionist of your choice when handing in your registration form.

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

If you change your name, address or telephone number please remember to inform the surgery. This may be done either by visiting the surgery, phoning us or submitting this change of personal details online form.

Any patient who notifies a change of address which falls outside the practice area will be asked to re-register with a doctor nearer to their new home.

Non-Registered Patients

An appointment for immediately necessary treatment is only available to people who have incurred an accident or medical emergency at any place in our practice area and who require GP services. If the resulting condition is potentially life threatening an ambulance should be called using the 999 service.

In addition, if you are away from your normal place of residence and are staying within our practice area for more than 24 hours and less than 3 months, you may also request an appointment.
