If you have a complicated medical history or take regular medication please make an additional appointment with the doctor after your New Patient Health Check.

You will be registering with the Practice and can therefore see any of the doctors in the Practice. However, you will be allocated a named GP, who is responsible for your overall care at the practice and you should contact the practice if you wish to know who this is. As it is preferable to remain with the same doctor for the duration of treatment of a particular illness and you may select a “preferred doctor” when you register by requesting registration with this particular doctor. When booking an appointment, you should request this particular doctor and we will endeavour to book you in with this doctor, although they may be occasions when this is not possible due to leave.
