REGISTERING WITH THE GARDENS SURGERY
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
All patients registered at the 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.
Do you live within our Registering Boundary Area?
How to register
Our catchment area changed and was agreed with NHS England on 13/03/2014. if you want to check whether you are in our catchment area to join as a new patient please enter your postcode in the postcode box of the catchment area tool above. If you have already joined us, no action is needed.

We only register patients after 9.30am and up to 30 minutes before closing. If you are already registered with another practice and are moving to this practice, you will not be able to book an appointment until you have gone through the registration process. Please bring in two recent proofs of address (utility or council tax bill for example) and your NHS number if you know it. We also will need proof of ID (preferably with a photo) as we offer online appointment booking and /or repeat medication requests.
You will need to fill in a registration form and a questionnaire. If you feel you have a complex medical history it would be helpful if you could book a new patient check with a Practice Nurse prior to seeing a GP.
Over 75s can have their new patient check at home from our specialist nurse Kirsty. Please ask at reception.
An adult should complete the form for children under 16. Under 16s do not need a new patient check unless they have a complex medical history.
Disabled Patient Facilities
Disabled patient facilities are also available at this practice.
