Registering With Us
How to Join our List
If you have just moved into the area then please ask the reception staff for a registration pack. You will be asked to fill in a form. You can also download our registration form here…GMS1 We will look after your medical needs straight away but please bear in mind that we may not receive your medical records for up to 10 working days.
To complete your registration we request the following information:
- Proof you live in the surgery catchment area by showing us a utility bill or similar
- Photographic proof of your identity i.e. a passport, driving licence or a student I.D card
For children (0-16): Birth certificate
Please note: If you are unable to produce the above the practice will still consider you registering with us on an individual basis.
Your registered GP will be Dr Rowland but you may see ANY GP here at the practice, when you ask for an appointment let us know if you have a preference about who you see. Please note that in the event of an emergency you may be unable to specify who you wish to see.
Please note: As of April 2014 practices are required to provide all their patients aged 75 and over with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them. The reception staff will be pleased to inform you of who your named GP is but this does not prevent you seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.

Our Practice Area
The map below is a guide to our Practice Area. Please ask at reception if you are unsure whether you are within our area. Generally postcodes with BH8 and BH9 are within our boundaries.
There is a ramp for ease of access to the surgery; the doorways have also been widened to allow wheelchair access. If you are experiencing any difficulties then please ring the bell at the front entrance and we will be happy to assist you.
Requesting Home Visits
Doctors will visit the seriously ill and housebound at home. Please request the visit by 10.30am if possible. The receptionist may ask for a brief outline of the problem in order to assist the doctor in prioritising his/her house calls. It is not the responsibility of the practice to visit if transport cannot be arranged or funded by the patient. Please make every effort to attend the surgery, as more facilities are available for your treatment.
