New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
We are extremely happy to receive new patient registrations from patients living within the practice boundaries, which lie between Barnstaple and Bideford Bridges, and approximately three miles inland from the coastline within this area. This includes most postcodes starting with EX39 4, EX31 2, EX31 3 & EX32 0. Please contact the practice if you are located on the edge of our catchment and are unsure if your postcode is included in our area.
We believe that health care is best delivered by having one GP responsible for an individual patient’s care and every patient registered with the practice has a usual doctor. It will not always be possible for you to see your usual doctor, but he or she is your first option when requesting a consultation.
Please pop into reception and you will be given a registration pack to take away and complete including registration form, NHS data sharing consent form, new patient questionnaire and application for online services. You will also need to provide confirmation of your identity in the form of a current passport or driving license. The practice offers an optional New Patient Medical to all patients aged 16 years or over.
If you are a new patient & need to set up your repeat prescriptions list, please provide your re-order list (the white part of the prescription slip) from your previous surgery when you register. It may be appropriate for the Pharmacist to review your medication with you & the Reception Team will contact you to arrange this.
Alternatively you may print out copies of the registration documents below, fill them in and bring them in with you to the practice to register. Please note that when you bring in your completed registration forms, you will need to bring with you some form of photo ID to prove your identity, preferably a passport or driving license and for children a birth certificate.
