Steps to New Patient Registration
Check you are within the practice's catchment area
Each practice has a catchment area within which they can accept new patients. Ours is as highlighted -
Complete Registration and Health Check Form - available from reception staff at surgery or by clicking the following link to download the online form -
The registration form will ask you for personal details such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, previous address and doctor. This information helps the Clinical Commissioning Group to quickly trace your medical records and send them to your new surgery. The New patient questionnaire will ask you for some basic, lifestyle and allergy questions, so we can provide the best service possible from the start.
The new patient registration form is a legal document and needs to be filled in, signed and brought to the practice. Without a correctly completed and signed form the practice can not proceed to register you as a patient. All patients are registered to Abercromby Family Practice rather than a individual named GP.
Placed on the Practice list
Once you have completed and signed the form bring the form along to the surgery to be registered with the practice.
