Please confirm that you live within our Practice Catchment Area:
Our online registration form will collect your details, a brief outline of your medical history and record your preferences. This information may be added to your record and will allow us to begin to provide you with medical services.
Please register for Access to Online GP Services. To register for online services we do require a copy of your photo identification (passport, driving license or European Union Identity card). You can upload a copy of your identity with the 'Upload Identity' button below, or if you prefer to submit your documents in person please speak to the reception team.
If you live in our practice designated area you can join our list. If you are registering your new baby please next section (below).
To enable registration you will be need to provide the following information:
- A completed General Medical Services (GMS1) Registration Form.
This should be completed with your NHS Number (we are unable to register you without your NHS Number, you can get this from your previous GP Surgery).
- Proof of Identification (ID) (Photographic ID, for example Passport or Driving Licence)
- Proof of Address (recent Utility Bill, i.e. gas, electric or council tax bill)
Copies of our registration form are also available from reception.
All newly registered patients are advised to attend for a health check with the Practice Nurse or our Phlebotomist, this will provide details of your medical history from the start. Ask Reception for details.
You need to register your new baby at the practice as soon as possible. Therefore please download and complete a General Medical Services (GMS1) Registration Form, then send it to the surgery (copies of the form are also available at reception).
Please ensure you provide your baby’s NHS Number which will be detailed in their Red Book. Once we have received the form we will register your baby as a patient at this Practice.
The Practice will send you an appointment for a mother and baby post-natal check. This is a 50 minute appointment, 30 minutes for the baby check and 20 minutes for the post natal. Your baby’s course of routine immunisations will start at 8 weeks and will be given at this appointment. Please remember to bring the red book. If you cannot make this appointment you must notify reception as soon as possible. Please be advised that if you do need to cancel, the next available appointment may be anything up to 4 weeks after that date.
The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice area should medical advice be required. In this instance persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.
To register you will need to bring your passport and complete a Temporary Resident Registration form which is also available from reception.
To register we require photo identification (ID) (passport, drivers licence or European Union Identity card).
If you are homeless or of no fixed abode, then although it is helpful to have photo ID you can register without any.
Any other ID such as an HC2 Certificate, Rough Sleepers' Identity badge, Hostel registration or mail forwarding letter would also be helpful but again we will register you even if you don't have these. As we know it is more important that you can access health care when you need it.
If you are unsure on how to register, please ask at reception and they can help you to complete the registration process.
All patients registered at Cumberland House Surgery have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
