Registration Form Part 1 of 2 (GMS1)

From October 2017 the GMS1 form includes questions about your Residency Status in the UK.   This information will be shared with other Government departments such as the Home Office.  You might be charged for some kinds of treatment in a hospital.  

You do not need to prove your Residency Status to register with a GP and you will not be charged to visit a GP.

For official advice about answering these questions see the NHS leaflet below:

NHS advice leaflet - Visiting the UK  - you may be charged for hospital treatment

If you are worried about how to fill out the GMS1 form or you want independent advise about how to access healthcare visit the charity:

Registration Form - Part 2 of 2

    • Proof of identity: Passport or EU ID card, Photographic UK driving licence, UK birth certificate, child’s immunisation red book.
    • Proof of address (dated within the last 3 months): utility bill, tenancy agreement, bank or credit card statement, council tax bill

  3. Please record your Blood Pressure, Weight and Height using the machines in our waiting room

When registered with the practice you may book an appointment with any doctor. However, for continuity of care, reception will tell you your 'usual doctor' when you register.
