We are pleased to welcome new patients to either Heatherview Medical Centre or Fernside Surgery if you live in or have recently moved to our practice catchment area. If you are unsure if you live in our catchment simply check our new Post code checker tool on our website by clicking here.
How to Register
You will need to complete the New Patient Registration Online form, if you don’t have access to the internet please give the Admin team a call on 01202 743678.
Please ensure you complete these forms fully as we cannot register you without this information.
Please allow 3-5 working days for us to register you on our computer system. We do understand that sometimes an urgent registration may be required, if this is the case, please contact the surgery after 10 days if no contact was made.
Please note that the practice can refuse a registration application if we have reasonable grounds to do so.
We encourage all of our patients to sign up to our Virtual Patient Participation Group. Find further details here.
If you take any regular medications, please ensure you have a supply of medication from your previous practice (we suggest one months’ worth). Once registered we can then arrange an appointment for you to come and meet a GP to set up your repeat medications.
It would be very helpful if you could provide us with a copy of your repeat medications when you register at the practice so if you have that information available, either as a print out from your previous surgery or as your repeat slip, please hand it to the Receptionist with your Registration forms.
