How Do I.... Register With The Practice?
We accept new patients who fall within our catchment area (see practice area map).
To register as a patient please complete the forms available at the reception desk – each adult must sign an individual form. Please note it can take up to 48 hours for the registration process to be completed.
Registration - Refusals
The practice may on some rare occasions refuse to accept registrations but will not do so on grounds that relate to the applicant’s race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
Patients who have been removed from the practice list as a result of abuse or aggressive behaviour will not be re-registered.
Patients who are refused registration should contact West Yorkshire Central Services Agency patient registration section (see WYCSA information). For general information on GP surgeries in your residential area go to www.nhs.uk click on GPs and enter your postcode.
The practice list size is not closed at the present time. However, there is a maximum which we cannot exceed without compromising the care of patients.
How Do I.... Change My Details?
If you change your name, address, telephone number or mobile phone number please tell us immediately, in writing, so we can keep your records up to date. Forms are available from the reception desk.
If your change of address means that you have moved outside the practice area, you will be advised of this and requested to register with a GP closer to your new home. Once you have registered with your new practice, your records will be sent on to your new GP.
If you change address and you have a hospital appointment pending it is your responsibility to notify the hospital of such a change.
