New Patients

Quote / Testimonial:
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. If you move out of the practice area you will need to register with another practice.

All new patients are invited to make an appointment to have a health check with our practice nurse. If you are on any regular medication you will also need to make an appointment with the doctor.

Register With Us

To register with us, please check you live within our catchment area; you can do this using the map below.

Once you have ensured you live within our boundary, print off the registration form, the new patient questionnaire and the patient consent for email and text message communication. Once these have been completed please bring them to the surgery with your proof of address and photo ID.

– Photo ID such as passport or driving licence
– Proof of address such as utility bill/bank statement less than 3 months old, current council tax bill or copy of your lease agreement
– For children aged under 16 years, please provide their birth certificate showing their parent’s details
– If you are unable to provide any documents please speak to reception.
  • You are also able to visit the surgery in person to obtain the relevant forms.
  • If you are unable to provide the surgery with any of the required information (forms of ID etc.), please contact reception, who will try to assist you.

Catchment Area

All practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support provided by their surgery. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice.

If you have a preference as to which GP you would prefer to be your named GP, we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. You do not need to take any further action, but if you would like further details, including which GP you have been allocated as your named GP, please contact reception.

If you would like to discuss this further, please contact the practice on 0161 983 9400 or via email [email protected] and ask to speak to the Practice Manager.

Find Your NHS Number

Sometimes when filling in online forms or speaking with our staff, you may be asked for your NHS number.

This online tool will help you find your number if you do not know it.

Please Note

You do not need to know your NHS number to use NHS services, but it can be useful to have it.

Other ways to get your NHS number

If you cannot get your NHS number online you can:

  • find it on any letter from the NHS like a prescription or appointment letter
  • call your GP surgery and ask them for your number

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

To register as a temporary resident you will need to contact the surgery and complete and return the ‘Temporary Patient Registration’ form.

You can register as a temporary resident with a GP in England if you are in the area for longer than 24 hours, but less than three months.
