Register as a New Patient
We can only accept new patients who live in our practice area. Our catchment areas are Woodsetton and surrounding areas.
Please check opposite to see if your address falls within our catchment area.
You can register by completing the online New Patient Registration forms below.
When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see the practice nurse for a new patient health check. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up to date.
All patients (including children) have been allocated a named accountable GP. You can still continue to see any of our GPs. If you are not aware who your accountable GP is, please ask reception.
You can register as a patient at the surgery if you live within the area shown on the map opposite.
Please note that every care has been taken in the preparation of information on this Postcode Mapping Tool, however there may be instances where the Postcode Mapping Tool does not include your location even though it is within our Practice Boundary. An example of this may be new housing developments where the postcodes are not yet included on Google.
In these circumstances please check on the Practice map for more details, or contact the Practice.
Please ensure you complete both forms below, 'New Patient Questionnaire' & 'New Patient Registration Form'. We require both forms to process new patients.
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 local 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.
