New Patients

Click here to check if you live within our boundary

Woodland Road Surgery is open to new patient registrations for those living within our practice boundary, which you can check above.

Like most practices we have a number of forms that we ask you to complete in order to register as a permanent patient.  We also ask that you print these forms and bring them to the surgery with 2 forms of identification, one proving who you are (passport, driving licence, birth certificate) and one proving where you live (any household bill from the last three months).  If you are unable to provide identification this will not prevent your registration.

When a child is registering as a new patient, in order to comply with safeguarding best practice we insist that the child is registered at the same address as a parent, carer or guardian and we will ask for evidence of this.  Documents you may be asked to provide include birth certificate, residency/custody order or other court paperwork to prove who has responsibility for the child on a day to day basis.  Every case is looked at individually so if you have any special circumstances please contact the surgery to discuss.

Registration Paperwork

Please click on this link to download/print a copy of the standard registration form.  This form should be completed in full and brought to reception in order to register with us.


The forms below are the additional forms and documents that you will need to read or complete as part of your registration –

Adult New Patient Questionnaire

New_Patient_Letter – Adult

Child New Patient Questionnaire

New_Patient_Letter – Child

If you have any difficulties, questions or concerns please contact us and ask to speak to one of the reception supervisors.

New Patient Healthcheck

All new patients will be offered the opportunity to have a new patient health check with either our HCA or a nurse.  They are not compulsory but they are a valuable opportunity for us to make sure we have all of your information correct, set up your repeat medication and carry out some basic health screening.  The appointment can be arranged at a time to suit you and should take no more than 15 minutes.  We do encourage new patients to attend this check wherever possible.

Your Medical Records

Newly registered patients often wonder how long their medical records will take to arrive.  The answer to this is – it varies.  Many of the NHS systems can now communicate and so much of your record will arrive electronically using the GP2GP system.  For your paper notes it can take a several weeks particularly if you are moving from a different part of the country.  If you have any concerns about this you can discuss the process with our reception team.

Making Appointments

Typically we will have you on our system and registered within 24 hours of receiving your completed paperwork, however if you urgently need to see a Dr just mention this when you bring your paperwork and we can get you registered immediately and arrange for you to be seen.
