New Patients

You can join Hope Farm Medical Centre as a new patient if you live within the catchment area of the medical centre. New patients are booked New Patient Medicals which complete the registration.

New Patient Medicals are booked with our GP Assistants who will help you understand how the practice operates and learn more about you to update your medical records. If you have a new or ongoing medical problem this will need a separate appointment with your GP.

Non-urgent advice: New registrations

We are currently accepting new patients.

Register online

We are using a new online service called “Register with a GP surgery” that makes it easy to register with the practice.

Fill in the online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Paper registration forms

If you would prefer you can download paper versions of the registration and bring them into the surgery to register.

To register you must complete both a GMS1 form and a questionnaire.

The registration documents are available to pick up at the surgery.

Catchment Area

Sometimes when filling in online forms or speaking with NHS staff you may be asked for your NHS number. You do not need to know your NHS number to use NHS services, but it can be useful to have it.

This online tool will help you find your NHS number.
You can register as a temporary resident with the practice if you are in the area for longer than 24 hours, but less than three months. To register as a temporary resident you will need to contact us, complete and return the GMS3 form. This form is available at the practice.

For further information about temporary registrations read more here.
