Patient Information

Here you can find out how to register at our practice and read other important information for patients.

In order for you to register:

    • It is very helpful, if possible, for us to see some form of proof of identity i.e. Passport or Driving licence, preferably photo ID if you have it. If not then a bank statement, utility bill or bank card.

    • For patients who are 18 years of age or younger please hand in their ‘red book’, this means that vaccinations can be recorded on your computer record. The Receptionist can photocopy the vaccination details and return the book to you

    • Complete the Purple GMS1 ‘Family doctor services registration form’ GMS1-family-doctor-services-registration-form:GMS1-family-doctor-services-registration-form

    • We would also be grateful if you, and each member of your family, could complete the New Patient Questionnaire: Registration form – Adult Nov 2018 so that we have some background information whilst waiting for your full medical records to be transferred.  For children Registration form – children

    • Complete and return the Summary Record Consent form: Sharing your health records leaflet
    • We encourage all new adult patients to make an appointment to see the Practice Nurse for a New Patient Check, an approximately 20 minute appointment, so that we have a ‘baseline’ for future reference. If you are on any regular repeat medication or have on-going health problems, we suggest that you make a telephone appointment with a GP as soon as possible, so that there is no delay in providing the medication that you need

  • The mobile telephone number on your record should be your own personal one. For patients under 16 we can put a parents mobile number and email address on their record but when they reach 16 these contact details will be removed. The patient should contact us when they reach the age of 16 to update their contact details to a personal mobile and email.

  • Please take the time to read our practice leaflet click on this link:J83629 Practice Leaflet 2023 and complete and return all the various documents in your pack. Including the ‘Sharing your health record’, there is a consent form on the back of it.

The Practice Nurse will review all medical records that we receive and she may contact you to offer an appointment if she feels it would be to your advantage. If you have any questions, please ask the Receptionist. We hope that you do not need us often but we will always do our best to help if you do.



Complete our: Questionnaire for patients with suspected UTI and bring that with your sample into the surgery before 11am.  This allows time for the Practice Nurse or GP to test the sample at the surgery and if necessary package the sample for sending to the laboratory at Salisbury District Hospital. The hospital courier usually collects our samples at 12.00.

There is an alternative form if you have been asked to bring an MSU (Mid stream Urine sample) sample into the surgery for another reason i.e. annual review ACR which is usually an early morning urine sample: URINE SAMPLE FORMS New Version 11.06.2018
