Who can register?
We operate an ‘open’ patient list and are always accepting new patients to the practice. Anybody who is eligible for NHS services in the UK can join the practice.
Since January 2015 patients have been able to freely choose their GP practices regardless of geographical location. As such, we openly accept patients who live inside and outside of the West Heath boundary, however new patients should be aware that our doctors are only able to provide home visits to patients who live within our local area boundary.
For more information about registering please speak to reception by calling 0121 476 1135.
How do I register?
You can register as a new patient with the practice:
- Online by completing our online registration form
- By visiting in person, to hand in a completed practice registration form to reception
- By posting a completed practice registration form to our practice address
Once we have received the registration form, we will seek to complete the registration process within 48 hours. Failure to complete any sections of the registration form your registration may be delays in completing your registration.
Please be advised that new patients are unable to book appointments for 48 hours, until their registration process has been completed.
What happens next?
Once you have registered at the practice you will be offered a new patient health check by one of our clinicians. This will enable you to obtain a health review and advise the practice of any health issues you may have. At this stage the practice can introduce you to any appropriate services that are available.
Due to the time taken for new patient records to arrive at the Surgery from previous Healthcare providers, we would recommend requesting a course of any required medication from your previous Surgery to ensure that there is no delay in you receiving your medication.
