All patients registered at The Ross Practice 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.
If you live in our practice catchment area (see above) you can join our list. If you are registering your new baby please next section.
To register please visit the surgery between 12 noon and 2pm or 5pm - 6pm with the following information:
- A completed GMS 1 form (download here)
- A completed Adult Registration form (download here) or a completed Child Registration form (download here).
- 1 x Photo identification (eg Passport or Driving Licence)
- 1 x Utility bill or bank statement sent to your current address, which you have received within the last three months.
If you visit outside of our registration times (see above), there is likely to be a long wait to have the forms accepted by the receptionist.
All newly registered patients are advised to attend for a health check with our Healthcare Assistants or our Practice Nurses, this will provide details of your medical history from the start. Children under the age of 5 years do not require a health check but parents / guardians should be able to provide immunisation details.
Please note, you will not be registered with The Ross Practice until you have made AND attended a new patient health check with a member of our practice nursing team.
You need to register your new baby at the practice as soon as possible. Therefore please download and complete a GMS1 Registration Form and send it to your surgery (paper copies are available from reception). Please ensure you provide your baby’s NHS Number which will be detailed in their Red Book. Once we have received the form we will register your baby as a patient at this Practice.
The Practice will send you an appointment for a mother and baby post-natal check. This is a 50 minute appointment, 30 minutes for the baby check and 20 minutes for the post-natal. Your baby’s course of routine immunisations will start at 8 weeks and will be given at this appointment. Please remember to bring the red book. If you cannot make this appointment you must notify reception as soon as possible. Please be advised that if you do need to cancel, the next available appointment may be anything up to 4 weeks after that date.
The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice area should medical advice be required. In this instance persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.
To register you will need to bring your passport and complete our Temporary Resident Registration form which is available from reception, or the GMS3 form can be downloaded by clicking here.
