New Patient Registration
From 1st August 2017, Birchwood Surgery will not be registering new patients. This will initially be for a minimum of 6 months, whereby we hope to be in a position to start taking patients once again. This decision has not been an easy one and has been approved by NHS England. We apologise for any inconvenience.
To register with the practice you must live within the practice area. It is practice policy that you are registered with a named doctor. However, you may express a preference to see another doctor when you book an appointment. Whilst the practice will try and comply with your request it may not always be possible for you to see the doctor of your choice.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race; gender; social class; age; religion; sexual orientation or appearance; disability or mental condition.
Due to high demand we ask patients to please contact us to book an appointment to register. All new patients must provide identification before they can be registered e.g. one item of photo ID and a bill with your current address. In welcoming you to our practice, each member of the family over the age of 16 will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and a new patient information sheet. Please ensure that you give full details, as it may take some time for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. If you are on repeat medication you will be asked to make an appointment with a doctor prior to your current prescription running out.
For children under five it is useful for details of their vaccination history to be recorded from the red book that you hold for them.
You can download our registration forms before coming in to register.
