Register with us as a New Patient
Changes to registration during Covid-19 Pandemic
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice. To register you will need to complete our online registration form.
New Patient Registration
If you would like to join the practice please fill out our secure online form you should ideally upload a proof of address (Utility Bill etc) and your NHS (National Health Service) number to the form. After this is submitted to the practice you will be given an appointment to see the Health Care Assistant for a New Patient Check, and this would complete the registration process.
Children 16 and under do not need to complete the registration form. An adult member of the family can register them by providing the required information and signing the registration application on their behalf.
As a patient, you have the right to express preference as to which GP you wish to see. However, if you require an appointment and your preferred GP is not available, you will be offered an appointment with another doctor. If you still wish to see your preferred GP you may have to wait longer.
We would kindly request that applications are submitted by 6pm to enable the registration process to be completed that day. Patients may need to return another day to complete the registration process for applications submitted after this time.
Named Accountable GP
All patients registered at the Acorn & Gaumont House Surgeries have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
