Information for new patients

Check if you are in the Practice Catchment Area

You can register as a new patient with the practice if you live inside our inner practice area. Some patients are registered from outside as the area was different when we were based at Butt Lane (LS12 4JE), a few years ago. You can check if you fall within our catchment area by visiting our catchment area page.

What to bring to register

To register yourself or everyone in your household you will need to visit the surgery to complete a registration form. Please bring with you one of the following:

  • Two forms of identification – one of which should include your Name, Date of Birth & Address. (eg. Passport or Driving Licence)
  • An existing Health Card (with NHS number)

You will also need to complete a new patient health questionnaire giving details of your important past medical history, medication you are on, allergies etc. (You can do it online using the available online form, but it will not be processed until you come to us with the documentation required).

New patients will normally be offered a preliminary health check when they register.

Overseas Visitors

If you are an overseas visitor to the UK there may be a charge to see the doctor or nurse. For further information, please contact reception.

Updating Your Details
