How Do I Register With The Practice?

Patients wishing to register can come to the medical centre and pick up a registration pack, alternatively the GMS1 form (registration form) can be downloaded from the NHS choices website (www.nhs.uk).

We register patients who have a postcode that begins with PO1, PO4 or PO5.

If a patient has moved while registered with us they are able to stay registered with the medical centre, as long as you live within the PO1, PO2, PO3, PO4 or PO5 area. If a patient moves off Portsea island  they will be required to register with different medical centre.

When completed please hand the forms to the receptionist with two items of identification, these should be:-

• Proof of address - utilities bill / letter from landlord / Rent book (No bank   statements or bank cards please)
• Photographic ID - Passport / Driving licence / student card.

Registration will normally take 48 hours after which you will be invited to make an appointment with the nursing team for a new patient health check. It should be noted that there is normally a 6 - 8 week period before the medical centre receives patient's medical records from their previous medical centre.
