New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. We do not require identification such as photo ID or proof of your address to register you. If you do have something with your name printed clearly on it (such as a bus pass or library card, or a letter from the housing office.) this can help us to register you more quickly and stop us making mistakes when we register you.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. This form is quite long, but we are able to help you complete it if you are not able to do so on your own.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Change of Personal Details
Please let us know as soon as possible if you change your address, telephone number or name. If in doubt please check with reception that we have the correct details on file. It is important that we have up to date contact details in case we need to contact you.
Permission to share information with other NHS teams
We want to work closely with other NHS teams locally, especially Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust which provides community nursing services. This means that we can share information with the Community Trust to ensure that care is planned properly and is joined up. We will only share information where we know that you are receiving services from the Community Trust. We can only share information in this way if we have your permission. We will not share any information with the other partners unless we have your agreement or unless we are legally obliged to.
If you agree to us sharing your information then please let us know.
