Registration

Register with the practice

To register at this practice you need to live in the practice registration area. Please see our boundary map.

You can either come into the practice to pick up a form or print off this Registration Form. Once you have completed this you can either come into reception and hand it over to our team or fax it to us on 020 7261 9804.

Our reception team will normally check over the registration form with you to ensure we have all the information we need, either in person or over the telephone.

The practice has a policy of not registering children under 16 years of age without their parents/guardian as this helps to ensure a better continuity of care for the whole family.

Once we have received your registration form your details will be entered onto our computer system within 3-5 working days. However, if you need an appointment sooner than this please let reception know at the time you hand in your form and they can arrange an appointment for you.

Additional Registration Form Information

Our New Patient Health Check

We like to meet our new patients once they have registered with the practice. This is to introduce our services and carry out a brief health check. The check takes around 10 minutes and is usually performed by our healthcare assistant or practice nurses. It is completely free.

We do not insist that you have to have this check before you can be registered with us or before you see a member of a team for a pariticular health issue but we hope you would find it helpful.
The purpose of the check is to help you live a healthy lifestyle.  Screening tests will also be carried out during the appointment. These might include:

  • Measuring your blood pressure – this will check for problems such as hypertension (high blood pressure) which can indicate heart disease
  • Height and weight recordings – these will help us to assess your body mass index (BMI) and deal with any health problems that might develop because of your weight
  • HIV test – this will check for the virus in your blood by having a finger-prick test. Because HIV infection often has no symptoms, this will help us to care for patients with the virus before they become unwell

Tests you may be asked to bring with you:

  • Urine sample – this will check for excessive glucose or protein in your urine (which can be symptoms of common problems like diabetes)
  • Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea screening – this is a urine sample for men and a self taken vaginal swab for women.  Around 1 in 10 people in Southwark under the age of 25 have a Chlamydia infection, many without any symptoms.  It is important to have regular screening

If you have any ongoing medical problems, such as diabetes, hypertension, COPD we will ask you to come back for blood tests and a review.  If you are on any regular medications please book an appointment to see a GP.

What should I do if I do not want any of these tests?

Tell us. All of these tests are performed to help us care for your health as a new patient at our practice. Our staff will be more than happy to discuss any of these tests with you before they carry them out. If you need any more information please ask at reception or during your new patient health check.

Register for our text messaging service

On our registration form you will be asked if you wish to receive text messages to your mobile phone – please indicate if this is the case.

If you are already registered with the practice and provide us with a new mobile telephone number you will automatically be included in this service.

This reminder service has proved successful in reducing the number of appointments that are wasted when patients fail to come.
