New Patient Registration

The Practice welcomes new patients

registrationWhen you register with us you will need to complete TWO FORMS. A registration form which is available at reception or you can  download here . This form is for patients who are permanently living in the area. We also require new patients to complete the New Patient Questionnaire, which is also available at reception or you can download here We do asks patients to provide us with ID and a utility bill as proof of identity and address but if you are not able to provide these documents, you will still be registered with Probus Surgery, you can just let our reception staff know you have no documentation. Please complete these forms and hand in at reception.

On the online medical questionnaire we will request details of your past medical problems so as to provide you with appropriate medical care while we wait for your records to reach us. Your previous GP records can take anything up to three months to arrive at the practice.

Register Before You Need Us!

Many new patients only register with us when they have a medical problem. We strongly recommend that you register when you move into the Practice area.

Temporary Residents

During COVID-19

Temporary residents should telephone their normal GP, who should be able to help remotely by telephone consultation or video consultation.  If you require medication, you can request your GP sends this electronically to a local Pharmacy.  Alternatively, please telephone NHS111.

Temporary residents (those on holiday or here on business temporarily staying within our practice boundary and not registered locally) will need to register as a "temporary resident" using a different form available at reception or by downloading it here .  You will also need to bring along a form of identification, ideally photographic.

New Patients

At the time of registration, patients over 12 years and 0-12 year olds with chronic illnesses are encouraged to make an appointment for a 'new patient check' with the practice nurse before needing to consult a doctor. This enables much of the information regarding past medical problems to be recorded and acted upon as necessary. At that appointment the nurse will be able to review the new patient questionnaire completed at the time of registration. If you are attending for a new patient check with the practice nurse, you may find it more convenient to bring a fresh urine sample with you rather than produce one at the time. Our Receptionists can provide you with a sample pot and can answer any further queries you may have.
