New Patient Registration
We are pleased to welcome new patients moving into our catchment area. Patients wishing to register will:
- need to complete an NHS registration form;
- need to contact the surgery to make an appointment;
- need to provide proof of identity, i.e. a medical card, passport.
The consultation will last approximately 10/20 minutes. We ask patients to bring all of the above with them to the appointment along with a urine sample (adults only).
Forms can be downloaded from the following links:
Patient Registration form 0-16yrs
New Patient Registration form 17 years & over
NHS – Registration Form GMS1
Please be aware that new medical cards are no longer issued automatically, but patients may request by telephoning Hampshire and Isle of Wight Patient and Practitioner Services Agency on 01962 853361.
The practice reserves the right to refuse to accept a patient, for example:
- where the personal safety of practice staff may be compromised;
- where a patient does not turn up for the new registration check with nurse and fails to contact the practice within 48 hours of the appointment.
Carers and the Cared For
When registering with the practice, you will be asked if you are a carer or are cared for. As a carer you and the person you care for will be asked to complete the appropriate consent form to enable us to hold appropriate information in your medical record. Similarly, if you are cared for, you will need to ask your carer’s permission to hold such information in your medical record.
Change of Details/Circumstances
If you move or change your name, change your telephone/mobile number or purchase a mobile telephone, please let us know at the earliest opportunity so that we may amend our records. If you move outside our catchment area, you may be asked to register with another practice, as doctors are unable to visit out of area. Details of all Isle of Wight practices and their catchment areas may be obtained from the Isle of Wight NHS Primary Care Trust, Tel: 01983 524081.
