We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. You can register by bringing along your NHS medical card and completing a form available from reception. We will also ask you to fill in a ‘new patient questionnaire’ which will give us a helpful summary of your medical record which we will use whilst waiting for your notes to be transferred from your previous practice.
You will be registered onto our ‘pooled’ list under Corbridge Medical Group and each patient is assigned a named GP who will take responsibility for coordinating care and overseeing individual patient’s needs. However, the partners work as a team and you are free to consult with the doctor of your choice. The partners have a system for covering each others absences ensuring continuity of care.
If you would like to know who has been allocated as your ‘named GP’ just ask at your next appointment.
We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with one of our practice nurses, particularly if you are require regular medication as this will enable us to set up any repeat prescriptions you may need.
