Registering with a GP

You can register with a GP by looking up your local practice and providing them with your medical card details. If you do not have a medical card you should fill in form GMS1, which should be available at the surgery. Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the new surgery and you will be sent a new medical card. When you register with a new GP it is a good idea to ask for an information leaflet about the surgery and its services and policies.

If you have difficulty registering with a GP contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 01924 504975 (with confidential answer phone).
