Register with us as a New Patient

We welcome new patients. If you wish to register with Lyngford Park Surgery please come into the surgery and pick up a Registration Pack. The pack consists of:

  • a Registration Form (GMS1)
  • a medical questionnaire
  • a Fast Alcohol Screening Test (FAST)
  • the Accessible Information Standard
  • an Online Access Request form
  • a Summary Care Record Consent form

You can complete the forms here at the surgery on the day or complete them at home and bring them back in. Please note that we need all four completed forms before we are able to register you. New patients under 15 will be asked to complete the Registration Form only.

Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery, although acceptance on to the list is at the discretion of the Doctor. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number. You will not be refused registration if you do not have proof of ID, but if you do, we would ideally like to see:

  • A form of photo ID, for example, passport or driving licence
  • Proof of current address, such as a utility bill, bank statement or housing agreement

Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

Catchment area

We are happy to accept new patients who are ordinarily resident in the UK and living within our practice boundary.

See if you live within our practice boundary by using the interactive map and postcode checker.

Please note that if you were previously registered with a Doctor outside the UK then the Practice will not have access to your medical notes.  All patients who register from abroad should contact their previous Doctor to obtain copies of their notes.

We have the right to refuse to register patients if they have a violent flag against their record.
