New Patient Registration
We accept patients who live within an approximate 1.5 mile radius of the practice. Click here to view our practice area.
The receptionists will advise you as to whether your address is within our registration acceptance area if you are not sure whether you fall within our practice boundaries.
Existing patients are welcome to remain with us if they move within the town boundary. Ashmore Park, Pendeford and Bilston are not within the area covered by our practice. Please check with us when you move, and remember to update your details.
To register as a new patient please either bring your NHS number or NHS card (most recently these are white folded cards with purple writing on them), and proof of photographic identification with a letter from within the last three months confirming your address. Patients new to the UK also need to bring in photographic identification to register. EEA visitors will need to show their EHIC card or, if you are a non-EEA national you will also be asked to provide proof of Entitlement to NHS treatment.
You will also need to fill in a New Patient Registration form and an NHS registration form (GMS1) - you can either download these forms via the links on the above “Register Online” tab or please ask at reception for a paper copy.
If you have any medical problems or are on any medications, please ensure you book a doctor appointment when you register. All new patients are welcome to book a New Patient Medical also. All patients aged over 75 years will now also be given a named GP on registration.
Patients who are staying at a temporary address and are not registered with a local GP may register as Temporary Patients at the practice – this registration can last for up to 3 months.
Patients can register with the doctor of their choice at the practice, although this does not change the access to appointments as all doctors at the practice see all patients, no matter whom their ‘registered’ GP is.

Change of Details
Please keep us informed of every time you change address or telephone number. Occasionally we may need to contact you, so it would be helpful if you could provide us with your mobile phone number, as well as a home landline number, as this is useful if we need to contact you more urgently. We would never give your number to anyone other than a health professional – and even then only when needed; for example, to give you an urgent hospital appointment. It is very helpful if you are a student to also let us know your home address during vacations.
