If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
We will need 2 forms of identification one of which should preferably be photo I.D. such as a passport or driving license and one must have your current address i.e. utility bill, bank statement or rent agreement.
You will need to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. If you take repeat medication please ensure you have an adequate supply before registering with us as we may not be able to issue any medication straight away.
These forms can be collected from Reception at any of our three sites
All new adult patients are required to have a New Patient Health Check with a member of the Nursing team to ensure that information and any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking. It is preferable for this to be done prior to a Doctors appointment.
Please contact reception for any further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
We do not currently accept online registration
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
We understand that people are very reluctant to change their G.P, especially if they have been with us for a number of years, but with the continued expansion of Telford housing and population we have reached the difficult decision of having to ask patients outside our area to change their surgery.
These decisions have not been taken lightly and we have consulted with the Telford & Wrekin CCG as well as guidelines from GOV.UK, NHS Choices and NHSEngland to ensure we act in a fair and balanced way.

Although as of January 2015 all GP Practices are free to register or keep patients who live outside their Practice boundary and patients have a right to choose the practice that best suits their needs, it is still for the individual Practice to decide.
We at the Practice do not think it is clinically appropriate or practical to keep patients outside our catchment area.
We would request that if you receive an 'out of area' letter you re-register at a surgery within your new catchment area within 30 days, after which date we will, with regret, have to deduct you from our list.
If you have difficulty in finding a Doctor you may wish to contact NHS Telford and Wrekin, Halesfield 6, Telford, TF7 4BF, Telephone 01952 580300.
