    • Your completed registration form

If You are a resident in UK

If you have been fully registered with a GP in the UK before, it helps us to have your NHS number for section 8. As it says on the form, this is not your National Insurance number. It is a 10-digit long number and does not contain any letters. If you do not know it and do not have any hospital letters etc with it on, your current GP Surgery will be able to help you.

If you are moving within the UK, please ensure that you are also able to give us your previous address, including your postcode. We will need this in order to trace your medical records.

If You are not resident in UK

If you have never registered with a GP in the UK before then please ensure that you provide and complete the following additional forms and information.


Children under the age of 16 whose parent/guardian is registered with the practice or registering at the same time will need to provide either:

  • An original birth certificate or a certified copy
  • A valid passport

Please return the completed forms and supporting documents for all family members wishing to register. We must check all forms carefully so please allow for the time this will take when you choose to come and attend.
