New Patient Registration
WE PREFER THAT YOU REGISTER WITHOUT ATTENDING SURGERY
- Check if you live in our Practice Area
- Fill out a Patient Registration Form Part 1: GMS1
- Email or post us a Patient Registration Form Part 2: Medical Questionnaire (PDF or Word)
- If you want online services, you will also need photographic Proof of Identity OR you can set up the NHS App without visiting the surgery. Click this link for the NHS App
We will try to register you as quickly as possible - we do have a backlog due to staff shortages so please allow at least two weeks if possible.
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.
Please also complete our Communication Support form if you have particular communication needs (for instance, Large Print or Sign Language)
Oops - just getting that link mended
Our Practice Area
FOR NEW PATIENTS:
you must live in the area marked pink on the map.
FOR EXISTING PATIENTS WHO MOVE:
we are able to keep you registered here if you move out of our area to another Sussex postcode but you will not be able to request a Home visit and many essential NHS community based services will not accept you.
Patient Registration Form - Part 1 (GMS1)
GMS1 Registration Form - Webform version
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 - you will not be charged to visit a GP.
For official advice see the NHS leaflet Visiting the Uk.
If you are worried about how to fill out the GMS1 form or you want independent advice about how to access healthcare visit the charity:
