New Patient Registration
To register you will need to be living in Chafford Hundred and to produce your medical card, together with your birth certificate/ passport plus a utility bill. In exceptional circumstances, we may be able to register you without production of a medical card but you will need to know your National Health Number. You will need to visit the surgery with your identification documents, at which time you will be booked a future appointment for a New Patient Health Check.
You will be registered with the group practice but you may wish to request to have a “preferred” GP of your choice. Please feel free to arrange this with the receptionist at your registration.
At your registration appointment, the nurse will discuss your medical history and undertake a BP and weight check. She will ask you to produce a urine sample (if you have not brought one with you, a bottle can be obtained from reception prior to your appointment).
If you are taking any regular medication, including contraception, you should bring the packets with you for the nurse to record. Please ensure that you book a routine appointment with the doctor to obtain your first prescription from this surgery.
Children under the age of five are not required to attend a new patient registration appointment. However, we will require some important information, such as immunisation history, and the receptionists will give you a form to complete to this effect.
