New patients are welcome at the practice, and the patient list is open to anyone living inside the practice boundary. If you live outside the boundary your registration will be refused.
**DUE TO COVID-19 WE ARE NOT GIVING OUT NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION FORMS IN PERSON - DO NOT COME TO SURGERY TO COLLECT NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION FORMS. If you live within our practice boundary and wish to register at The Upstairs Sugery please complete BOTH registration forms and email your registration request along with ID required to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you with registration forms and information required.**
Please complete both of the forms below.
These forms must then be completed and returned to the surgery along with the required ID and Proof of Address. PLEASE NOTE IF ALL FORMS (GMS1 FORM AND NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION QUESTIONNAIRE) ARE NOT FULLY COMPLETED AND COPIES OF ID AND PROOF OF ADDRESS ARE NOT SENT TO THE PRACTICE THIS WILL DELAY YOUR REGISTRATION.
