If you would like to register with us, please check if you are living within our catchment area. You can call in to the surgery or ring us on 0161 962 4354 instead to check, if you prefer. If you are eligible to register, you’ll need to download three separate pieces of information or we can hand you these documents at reception:
- GMS1 registration form (2 pages) – needs to be fully completed & signed
- New Patient Questionnaire v3 2018 (2 pages) – needs to be fully completed & attach a copy of your repeat medication list (if applicable)
- DATA Sharing (2 pages) – needs to be read. Only needs completion if you do not want one or both of the data sharing options
Once the forms are completed, please bring these to reception during our opening hours along with evidence of your identity and current address, as listed in What do I need to register?. We will give you an information leaflet about the surgery and the services we offer and can help you complete any registration forms you’re not sure about.
If you’re not living within our catchment area, you can find other local practices to contact by checking the NHS website.
