New Patients

Welcome to our Practice!

The practice currently has an open list and welcomes new patient registration requests from people who live within the practice area. Applications received from people who live outside of the practice area may only be considered if there are individual special circumstances.

Our new patient welcome pack is available from reception, we look forward to meeting you when you call into collect the registration forms. If possible, please bring photo identification and proof of address with you when registering, this is incredibly helpful and ensures a smooth transition.

We have an onsite dispenary at Bow and are able to provide dispensing services to patients who live within the defined practice area. Regretfully, we are not able to provide dispensing services for patients who live within one mile of a pharmacy.

Right To Express Preference of Practitioner

The GPs work closely and are happy for patients to be seen by colleagues, as we appreciate that the GP of your choice might not be available when you need to access the service.

Patients may choose to register with an individual GP, which is helpful to both patient and GP as this enables us to provide continuity. Please let the receptionist know if you would like to be allocated to the list of a particular GP, we will do our best to meet your request where possible.

Please note that the Practice reserves the right to allocate you a GP upon registering with the practice, to ensure that our GPs have even lists. At times, our GPs may close their personal lists if their list becomes full, this is only ever undertaken in the interest of patient safety.
