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 the registration forms listed in steps 1 and 2 below and email them to email@example.com
Live within our boundary area?
We are a growing practice and we would like to register new patients who live locally, our area is predominantly Bristol BS9. The practice area map is available here (link to be provided enter your POSTCODE to check if you are in our area).
How to register
To register, please complete a registration form and a new patient questionnaire, one per patient. We will also request photo identification to arrange online access for you.
In the case of a new baby, please include their NHS Number (obtainable from Child Health or the Maternity Ward) or the child’s red book.
Forms (a document from both step 1 and 2 is required for all patients)
Step 1: Complete registration form
Step 2: Complete new patient questionnaire
You can email the new patient questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org
Registrations - outside practice boundary
If you live outside our illustrated boundary you can apply to be registered as an 'out of area patient'. This service is intended for patients where it is more convenient for them to attend a GP further away from their home address, for example, because it is close to work. The service is not designed for patients who have ongoing health needs where home visits and community services may be required.
Please complete the following document IN ADDITION to the registration form and new patient questionnaire if you have checked and you are out of area, but would still like to register.
We provide a Temporary Patient service for individuals staying within our practice area for less than 3months (e.g. whilst on holiday, staying with relatives etc.). If you require immediate or necessary medical care, please call us to obtain a temporary resident form.
If your care is routine - such as repeat medication or an ongoing issue, we will ask you to contact your regular GP surgery in the first instance. Most GP practices now offer telephone appointments and online consultations that you can use whilst away from home.
Further information about registration
The new patient questionnaire is really useful and also gives us additional information like your email address. Once we have added your registration details we will email you a welcome pack.
You will be registered with the Practice and be given a ‘usual doctor’ who will take the lead in reviewing any paperwork, test results and so on that we may receive. You have a right to ask to see a particular doctor, if you wish. We encourage continuity of care so prefer you to see the same doctor with the same problem if you can.
Please note that consent to contact via mobile phone (phone call or SMS) will be assumed if no other option is marked on the registration form or when the mobile phone number is provided to the Practice.
If you are taking any kind of medication, please make an appointment to see your usual GP.
Note: We do not exclude patients from the Practice on grounds of age, sex, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin or disability, sexual orientation, religion or religious or philosophical belief or medical condition.
