Register with us as a New Patient
We accept new patients who live within our practice area. Please contact reception for further information.
Everyone is welcome in General Practice. You do not need proof of ID, address, immigration status or an NHS number to receive care or to see a GP. Although a copy of ID can be helpful to ensure we get your information correct, it is not mandatory to have this in order to register with us.
In order to register at the practice. You will need to complete both the GMS1 Registration Form and a health questionnaire.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting personal information about yourself across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a GMS1 registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
Temporary residents (if you are visiting Canterbury but have a permanent address elsewhere in the country) will need to fill out a GMS3 form to access our services
All our patients now have a named accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care in the practice. If you would like to know who your named GP is please ask during your next consultation or at reception.
If you express a preference as to which GP you would prefer to be your named GP we will make every effort to accommodate you.
Please be aware that this does not mean you can only see your named GP. As before you are still able to see any doctor in the practice.
If your named GP is unavailable and your need is urgent it may be necessary for you to see an alternative doctor.
