Register as New Patient
It is essential that you live within our practice catchment area. Please check your address on our map before completing forms.
Following your request to be registered with a doctor at Park Practice it is necessary for you to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire. Both forms are available below.
The NHS family doctor services registration form must be completed in all parts including your NHS number and previous medical records information if you have been registered in this country before. The section ‘if you are from abroad’ or ‘if you are returning from the Armed Forces’ must be completed where necessary if the above does not apply.
Please do not leave any questions unanswered on the New Patient Information Sheet but enter N/A if the question is not applicable to you, therefore ensuring we can put your correct medical history on our computer.
These forms should then be returned to the surgery in person, as we do ask to see proof of address and ID where possible (not required for patients with special circumstances).
Once all the forms have been received, registration will take 10-14 working days. We will be unable to supply medication until all of the above has been completed.
We would like to inform our patients that we record, store, and may monitor or use any incoming and outgoing calls, email or any other communication with you for training purposes and to improve the quality of our services. Calls are stored on a standalone recording system and are not accessed unless there is a training or monitoring need. Calls are automatically deleted after 6 months. Should you wish a telephone call to be deleted before the 6 month period, please contact the practice to request this from a member of the management team.
Please enter your postcode to see if you live within our published catchment area.
Please see our Practice booklet for more information about the Practice.
Please note that we may require patients on Opioid medication such as Codeine, Dihydrocodeine, Tramadol, Morphine, Oxycodone, Fentanyl or Buprenorphine to sign a prescribing agreement. Example is attached:
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
Out of area registration
Unfortunately we are no longer able to accept new patients who live outside of our practice area.
If you are currently registered with the practice and move out of our catchment area, you will need to register with a surgery that covers the area you live in.
Please select the Surgery Boundary tab and enter your postcode to see if your property is within our boundary before completing the registration forms.
