New Patient Registration
Please note that the practice is not presently registering patients living in Barwell and Earl Shilton.
Should you wish to join our practice, please bring your signed medical card from your previous doctor. Alternatively, if you have no medical card you may ask the receptionist for form GMS1 that you should complete and hand into reception.
The practice will confirm to you in writing whether your application has been accepted or declined. If you are presently living in this area you should consult with your present GP until your registration with us has been confirmed. If you are new to this area and you need to be seen prior to confirmation of your registration, our doctors will see you as a temporary patient.
All patients registered at this pratice will be allocated a named accountable general practitioner. At this practice, the named accountable GP will be the same as the patient's registered GP. The exception to this will be some patients aged over 75 years or patients at risk of hospital admission. Their named accountable GP may differ from their registered GP but patients will be notified if this is the case.
All new patients over the age of 16 will be invited to a new patient consultation by the practice nurse within 3 months of registering. When attending for your New Patient Check, please bring with you a sample of urine, your repeat prescription card or medication issued by your previous doctor.
Change of Personal Details
It is most important that you notify the surgery of any changes to your personal details as soon as possible. If you change your surname, address or telephone number, please ask at reception for a form on which you may enter your new details. If you move to a new address, which is outside of our practice area, you will be contacted by the practice manager and advised to register with another doctor nearer to your home. Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to remain registered with the practice once you have moved outside of the practice area.
Accessible Information Form
From 31st July 2016 we are required to comply with the Accessible Information Standard. The standard aims to make sure that patients who have a disability or sensory loss get information that they can access and understand, and any communication support that they need.
New patients to the practice who are disabled or have a sensory loss may complete an "Accessible Information Form" found under "Accessibility Information" on this website and submit a copy of this with their registration forms.
