How to Register With The Practice
When patients register, it is with the practice rather than a particular GP. Patients registering with the Practice will be asked if they wish to name a preferred GP. Subject to appointment availability, patients will still be able to choose which GP they book an appointment with.
When you come to the surgery please bring your NHS card if you have it, as this speeds up the registration process.
Practices are now being asked to see patients' proof of identity, and address, when they register in order to reduce fraud within the NHS. The guidance advises that a combination of the following can be accepted as identification (it is preferable that one item of photo ID is seen, along with one document containing the patient’s address):
· birth certificate · marriage certificate · medical card · driving licence
· passport · local authority rent card · paid utility bills
· bank/building society cards/statements
· National Insurance number card
· letter from Benefits Agency/benefit book/signing on card
· papers from the home office
This list is not exhaustive. The following documents should not be accepted as proof of identity if presented in isolation:
· library card · video rental card · health club card · private rent book.
We would be grateful therefore if you could bring this documentation when you come to register with us.
The Practice boundary is designed so the majority of the Practice population lives within Stourport. Consequently the boundary no longer extends into Bewdley, or into Kidderminster past Birchen Coppice for new patients.
A map available in Reception, clearly indicates this boundary.
New Patient Checks
All new patients are asked to complete a new patient questionnaire. This provides us with important information about you in advance of us receiving your medical records from your previous surgery.
