Registration and Practice Area
Registering with the Practice
The practice welcomes new patients who live within our practice area The Practice area is between Madingley Road to the M11 and Histon Road to the A14. Patients living in Girton and Oakington can also register with us.
Unfortunately the NHS is organised in such a way that unless you live within the area covered by our practice you will be asked to register with a practice closer to your home. You can find out which practices cover your home address at the NHS choices website.
The doctors run an individual list system and believe they can provide the best care by taking personal responsibility for patients registered with them. You are strongly encouraged to see the doctor with whom you are registered. If your registered doctor is not available an alternative will be offered.
We encourage all new patients to REGISTER ON LINE
Provided that the individual is over 6 years of age, this is the only step necessary to register with us.
First year students - please use your College as your residential address.
All other addresses within our practice area will be accepted.
If you prefer, we can send you the necessary registration forms which you may return by post or email. Please use our contact details to request them.
New patients under 6 years of age
It is important not to miss any of the childhood vaccinations currently recommended.
Please send us a copy of the vaccination pages of your child's Health Development Record (in the UK this is usually called the "Red Book").
The easiest way to do so is to take a photograph of the record and to send it to us by email (see "contact details"). Remember to include your child's FULL NAME, DATE OF BIRTH and ADDRESS.
Our nursing team will contact you if your child has not had any of the vaccinations which are currently recommended by the UK programme.
What to do next
All new patients are welcome to have a New Patient Check with a member of the clinical team. Please contact reception if you would like to arrange one.
If you are on repeat medication from your previous doctor please note that you will not be able to access this medication without first having agreed it with your new doctor. Please contact us as soon as you have registered in order to make the arrangements. Do NOT leave it until you are running out of medication.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Visitors to the practice area who require medical attention but cannot reasonably attend their own doctors surgery may be seen by our practice. Please contact reception.
If you are actually living within our practice area you will be asked to register with our practice.
All our regular patients are seen under the NHS. However we do find that some of our visiting temporary patients prefer to see us as private patients. If you would prefer to be seen as a private patient, we may be able to offer you an appointment as a private patient, depending on availability of appointments. Please contact reception for more information on current service charges and to discuss how to arrange an appointment.
