How to Register

The practice welcomes new patients who live within its practice boundary. Our boundary covers a wide area including Benton, Forest Hall, Killingworth, Jesmond Vale and High Heaton.
A map of our area is shown below and in reception. If you are unclear if your address is included please ask our reception staff to check for you.

Patients who live out of the practice boundary may now be able to register for practice care only. Home visits could not be provided. If you would like further information on this please contact our reception staff.

To enable us to register you with the practice you will need to complete some forms. It is helpful if these can be completed before you make an appointment. You can complete some of the forms online using our Patient Access service, or pop into the practice and ask our receptionist for details.

New patients are requested to provide 2 forms of identification (1 of which must include address details). Examples of suitable forms of ID are:

  • birth certificate
  • driving licence
  • passport
  • paid utility bills
  • medical card
  • letters from government departments

Children (for this purpose this means any family member aged under 16) are asked to provide confirmation of their identity and to complete a GMS1 form.  A birth certificate is the preferred form of ID. A copy will be retained for parental responsibility details. Children under 16 years do not have to attend to complete forms or have their identity confirmed.

If patients cannot / will not provide ID documentation this does not prevent them from registering at the practice

Some patients, depending on their medical history, may need an appointment with one of our doctors when they register. If you would like a new patient check please ask for an appointment.
