New Patients

We welcome new patients to the practice regardless of gender, race, political or religious affiliation.  We do however need to ensure that all prospective patient are eligible for NHS services as we do not register private patients.

Registration requirements

Patients requesting to register are asked where they live to ensure that they live inside our Practice catchment area.  All patients requesting to register are then told that we require photographic ID and proof of current address to register with our Practice.

Patients who do not have adequate proof of address or photographic ID are asked to produce a letter demonstrating who they are and where they live.

Patients from outside of the UK  must have up-to-date visas or relevant home office papers.

Processing of registration paper work is between 9.00am -12.00pm and 2.00pm -4.00pm .

Business Services Organisation Forms

Form HS200 is for patients transferring internally from one GP to another, even if they have a medical card – this allows us and the BSO to update patient information records.

Form HSCR1 for all other patients

Each new patient will complete the Elmwood New Patient Form and the appropriate BSO form HS200 or HSCR1.  We require a full vaccination history for all children under 6 years.  If this information is not available parents are requested to sign the children’s registration form giving consent to start the vaccination program.
