PATIENT REGISTRATION

Before a patient can register at the practice the patient must provide identification.  Confirmation of this identification is required by the Health Board. A registration form is completed to allow the practice to request medical records from the patient’s previous surgery.  A medical questionnaire also needs to be completed as it can take up to 2 months for us to receive your medical records.

Patients on medication should ensure they have an adequate supply from their previous surgery (2 months recommended) as we may prefer not to prescribe until after we have received your medical records.

All New Patients aged 15 years and over are given an appointment with the Healthcare Support Worker within the first month for a new patient medical, which includes a blood pressure check.  Patients aged 5 – 15 years will only be given a New Patient medical if requested by the patient or the patient’s parent or guardian, if the request is made within the first 6 months of the patient being registered.  Children under 5 years of age do not need a medical.  At this appointment measurements of height, weight , blood pressure and urine tests are taken.

We are a busy medical practice with over 10,800 registered patients. If you cannot keep your appointment please cancel to allow someone else to use this appointment.

 

Registration of Children Under 6 Years

It is essential that the practice receives accurate information regarding childhood immunisations.  A recall system is in operation to remind parents of when immunisations are due.
