How do I register with a Doctor?
All patients living within the practice boundary are welcome to join our list. You will be asked to complete a registration form and a medical questionnaire. You can print these off from the pre-registration tab.
Please note that patients are registered with the Practice, rather than an individual Doctor.
Following recent NHS guidance all patients must provide the following identification - proof of address and photographic ID.
Registration with the practice
Please complete both the NHS Patient Registration and New Patient Registration Form and bring into the surgery to complete your registration with the Practice.
We will need to have these documents completed and have sight of some photographic ID and proof of address before we can book you in with a GP. Please also take a moment to read the information about Online Patient Record Access prior to completing the application for Online Access to Medical Records form which can be found on page 4 of the New Patient Registration Form below.
The practice covers an area of 200 square miles and serves around 5,700 patients.
The practice area is essentially the Northumberland county border with Cumbria to the south and west as far as Gilsland village, and by the boundaries of Thirlwell, Henshaw and Bardon Mill parish to the north. To the east is a line following the county boundary from Gilderdale eastwards to a point due south of Ridley Bridge road end, and then from there to Bardon Mill Parish Boundary to the north.
Please note: If you move out of the practice boundary, we may have to ask you to register with another medical centre closer to your new address.
