Changes to registration during Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice. To register you will need to complete our online regsitration form and Health Questionnaire.

You may also need to email the practice with a picture of your photo identification and proof of address such as bank statement, recent utility bill showing your name and current address.

When normal service resumes, you will be asked to bring the hard copies into the practice.

 

Registration Process

We accept new patients who live within our practice area.  Please contact reception for further information.

In order to register at the practice. You will need to complete both the GMS1 Registration Form and a health questionnaire.

 GMS1 Registration Form

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.

 Health Questionnaire

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

Named GP

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.
