New Patient Registrationregister_now

New patients registering at the surgery will only be eligible if they live within a 3 mile travelling distance, excluding postcodes CH4 7** and CH4 8**. Existing patients that move house more than a quarter of a mile beyond our 3 mile limit will be asked to re-register at a new surgery. If the address is beyond the 3 mile limit and located in Wales, we are not able to accept the registration due to different healthcare, IT systems, and administrative arrangements in operation there.

The three mile travelling limit will be determined by use of new technology e.g. “Google Maps”. We ask all new patients to complete two simple forms. This information is available to download via the above "Registering Online" tab.

In addition, all new patients are required to produce 2 separate forms of identification; photographic evidence of ID and proof of address. If you are unable to provide such proof, we will not be able to register you. If you are receiving on-going treatment please bring all the details with you.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
