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 forms that we ask you to complete in order to register as a permanent patient. We ask that you print and complete the forms in full before bringing them to surgery.
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 might 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.
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 –
If you have any difficulties, questions or concerns please contact us and ask to speak to one of the reception supervisors.
During the pandemic we have paused new patient healthchecks, however you can ask for a review over the phone with our nurse or HCA should you wish.
Typically 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.
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.
Typically we will have you on our system and registered within 24 hours of receiving your completed paperwork, however if you urgently need to speak to a Dr just mention this when you bring your paperwork and we can get you registered immediately and arrange for you to be seen.
