New Patient Registration
If you wish to apply to join the practice, please ask at reception and bring with you photo ID and recent proof of current address. Reception will explain the practice policy and procedure for registration. When registering permanently you will be asked to complete a New Patient Information questionnaire so that we can plan your care more effectively and you are invited to make an appointment to see our Nurses for a routine screen.
On completion of our registration forms, you will be advised the name of your usual doctor; however, all patients are registered with the practice rather than an individual doctor.
Having a usual GP does not prevent you from seeing another GP in the practice, nor does it mean that you will always see your usual GP, as GPs are not available every day the practice is open.
Also, it does not prevent you from choosing to see another GP for a pre-bookable appointment, but if you need is urgent you will be offered an appointment with an available GP.
NUFFIELD HOUSE SURGERY POLICY – We do not accept patient requests for change of their usual GP, as patients are able to choose to see another GP for pre-bookable appointments.
