Accountable / Named GP for All Patients

All patients registered at Abbey Lane 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.

How to register

Registering with us is as easy as filling out a form, which can be downloaded here GMS1 Registration Form. If you don’t have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download it here

You will also need to fill out our New Patient Information Forms.  There are two forms; one for children, and one for adults.  You can download these from the links above, then bring them in when you come to register.

New Patient Registration

All UK residents have the right within the NHS to be registered with a doctor, and we are more than happy to register anyone living within our captive area.

Information needed for the form:

  • Full name, including previous names.
  • Date and place of birth
  • Previous address.
  • New address with postcode
  • Name and address of your previous doctor
  • NHS number.  If you don’t know this -it’s not the same as your National Insurance Number- simply ask your previous doctor, and they will be happy to let you have it.

Registration Forms

You will need to complete an NHS (GMS1) Registration Form for each member of your household when you register in person.

To save time you can download the form you need to register from this website (see link above).

You will need to print a separate form for each member of your household who wishes to register as a patient with us.

New patient health check

Every patient registering with the practice will have the opportunity of a new patient consultation. The appointment gives you a chance to meet us, have your health checked and bring to light any ongoing medical problems or important past medical history, including continuing your medication.

Your appointment may be with a practice nurse.

We will ask you about the following:

  • Your past medical history (important illnesses and operations)
  • Ongoing medical problems
  • Medication
  • Family history
  • You will have your blood pressure taken and your urine will be tested. Occasionally other examinations or tests may be done if needed.

Disabled Patient Facilities

Disabled patient facilities are also available at this practice.
