New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
Online Registration With The Practice
If you wish to register online click on the links below to open the two forms we require; a Registration form and a Medical Questionnaire. When you have completed each of the forms, click the "Send" button to mail the form to us. Please note that we require both forms to complete your registration. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us.
Online "New Patient Health Questionnaire"
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form and a Medical Questionnaire, fill them both out and bring them with you on your first visit to the practice.
Registration Form Online "New Patient Health Questionnaire"
Registration is with the practice rather than an individual GP. You are able to express a preference of practitioner and whilst the practice will try to comply it might not always be possible, in which case an explanation as to why will be offered. You must live within the practice area.
A local rota (currently weekly) between surgeries (approved with Bedfordshire Heartlands PCT) is in place to enable a fair distribution of new patients. We will redirect patients requesting registration outside our designated period.
