You will need to show some photo ID e.g.passport/driving licence. The Receptionist will ask you to complete a form. You will be able to collect your access codes and registration instructions in 3 working days. Once you have the access codes and instructions you can connect to the web site at anytime and register.
WHAT ID CAN I USE?
We ideally require photographic identification. The following forms are accepted: current signed passport, current photo driving licence, disabled drivers pass, EU national ID card, current student ID, or an OAP travel pass. In special circumstances and for children we will accept a birth certificate.
WHAT ABOUT MY PARTNER/CHILDREN?
We ask all patients 12 years and older to complete their own registration form. They will then be provided with their own login details.
We understand it is not always easy to get to the surgery, so we will accept collection of forms by a family member, but we do ask that each patient signs their own form, and a form of ID is available for our reception staff to witness.
