If you would like to register as a patient, please complete the following steps :-

Step 1 : Complete the GMS1 Registration Form

GMS1 Registration Form

Please complete all sections and remember to sign the form.

Step 2 : Complete the New Patient Questionnaire

We ask all new patients to complete a short questionnaire to provide us with a brief medical history. It can take up to two months to transfer medical records from your old surgery so completing this questionnaire may help us provide medical care during this period.

Choose the correct form to complete below :-

New Patient Questionnaire (Adults and Children over 5)

New Patient Questionnaire (Children under 5)

Step 3 : Take the completed forms to one of our Surgeries

Present the forms to one of our reception staff. In addition you will need to provide some form of ID to confirm your identity and eligibility for NHS services.

We will then arrange for you to be entered onto our clinical computer system and your medical records will be requested from your previous surgery.


If you have an queries about the registration process then please email us at nencicb-nor.wmg@nhs.net – please include your postal address so we can verify that you are within our practice boundaries.

We encourage prospective new patients to register as soon as you move into the area rather than waiting until you need to see a doctor as records from your previous GP may take some time to be transferred.

We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse although this is entirely optional.
