Register with us as a New Patient

Practice Area

Patients who live within the Practice boundary are welcome to register with the Practice.

Patients who are already registered with us and move outside of our outer boundary may also be able to remain registered with us, if it is deemed clinically appropriate, as an Out of Area Registered patient. Out of Area registered patients can still come to the surgery and access all of our usual services except home visits which would be provided by a GP Practice closer to the patients home (home visits would need to be booked via 111). If you are moving out of our area and would like to remain registered with us, please telephone the surgery on 01225 331616 to check whether or not this would be possible.

Please note that if you were previously registered with a Doctor outside the UK then the Practice will not have access to your medical notes.  All patients who register from abroad should contact their previous Doctor to obtain copies of their notes.

Please use one method only to register with us in order to prevent duplication.

Register online

We are using an NHS online service called Register with a GP surgery that makes it easy to register with this GP surgery. Newly registered patients with children under 5 years old are asked to provide us with details of previous immunisations your child may have had. It is extremely important that these are recorded in the patient’s record.

Just fill in this quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It reduces our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Paper forms are still available if you need one.

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP practice, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP practice in your local area

Summary Care Record (SCR)

The Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. It can be seen and used by any authorised health or social care staff member who is directly involved in your care. This can prevent mistakes being made when someone is caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.  The SCR only contains limited information, i.e. current medications you are taking, any adverse reactions you may have had to medications and any allergies you may have.

If you are registered with a GP practice in England, your SCR is created automatically, unless you have opted out. Almost all patients in Bath and North East Somerset now have an SCR, unless you decide to opt out. 

Including additional information in your Summary Care Record

You can ask your GP to add additional information to your record. This additional information can be particularly useful for people with complex or long-term conditions, or patients reaching the end of life. For example:

  • significant facts about your medical history – past or present
  • information about any long-term conditions you have
  • your immunisation history
  • how you would like to be treated
  • what support you might need
  • who should be contacted for more information about you.

 If you would like your SCR to include any additional information please let the Practice know

 Further information can be found at: Digital NHS UK or phone NHS Digital on 0300 303 5678.

Organ Donation

From 2020, adults in England will be considered potential donors unless they choose to opt out or are excluded. For more information please visit the Organ Donation NHS UK where you can also register your decision.
