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.(Click on the link at the bottom of the page).
ALL NEW PATIENTS will be required to complete the registration form and the relevant new patient questionnaire, and have their NHS number available if appropriate. There is the choice of a male or a female doctor who are accepting patients to their list. 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.
Please download and complete the following documents.
Registration Form (Form GMS1) You need to complete this form and the relevant New Patient Questionnaire completely, in order to register with the practice.
Adult New Patient Questionnaire
Child New Patient Questionnaire
We will need this information because it often takes some time for your notes to arrive from your previous practice. If you have never registered with the NHS before you will also need to complete this form.
NEW PATIENTS UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE
Childhood vaccination record It is important not to miss any of the childhood vaccinations currently recommended. If possible please include a copy of the vaccination pages of your child's Health Development Record (in the UK this is usually called the "Red Book").
What to do next
It is important that you complete these forms as accurately as possible. Students may find it helpful to ask their parents to help e.g. with their vaccination history.
You will need to bring the completed forms to the Reception desk, where they will be checked for you. If possible please bring your NHS Medical Card with you. A new one will be sent to you after you register.
You will be offered an opportunity to book a New Patient Check with a member of the clinical team. 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 an appointment with your new doctor.
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.
