When you join the practice, we will request your medical notes from your previous GP. We use the GP2GP electronic transfer system to request your records whenever possible. However your paper records may take some time to arrive, and to help us ensure that you receive the best possible care in the meantime, we ask that:
- You complete a new patient questionnaire, on behalf of yourself and for other members of your family.
- Bring some form of photo ID such as your passport or photo driving licence with you, plus proof of address such as a recent utility bill, council tax statement or tenancy agreement.
- You can book an appointment to have a (free) new patient medical with the practice health care assistant if required.
- Your repeat medication may not automatically be on our system so you may need an appointment with a GP to have your medication added.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask any of the receptionists, who will be pleased to help.
