How to Register at Whitnash Medical Centre
There are certain requirements for you to become registered at this practice and they are as follows:
You need to be living within our Practice area, see the map and postcode checker at the start of this page).
We need your NHS number and you can obtain this from your NHS Medical Card or contact your previous GP surgery and ask them for it.
If you are aged 16 or above, you will need to provide one form of identification listed below so that we can be sure you are who you say you are and that we record your details accurately:
- Driving Licence
- Utility Bill with your name & current address on it
- Inland Revenue documents such as P60 with your current address on it
- NHS medical card
You will need to complete a registration form and New Patient Questionnaire. You will also need to fill this out for any of your children aged under 16 that you are registering with us.
We would like all our patients (including children) to attend for a New Patient Check with one of our nurses and reception staff will make an appointment for you.
If you need to see a GP urgently before you can provide or undertake any of the above, this will be possible but you will need to arrive 15 minutes earlier for your appointment to complete the registration documents, including the New Patient Questionnaire and ensure you know your NHS number in order to be seen. You will remain registered as a temporary resident until you fulfil the above criteria.
