Registering with the surgery

To register with the surgery:

When you register, it’s helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

Once the form has been submitted the reception team will contact you within two working days to either confirm your registration or request further information.

All new patients must attend an appointment for a new patient health check with the Practice Nurse.

Named GP

All patients at Five Elms Medical Practice have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating their care.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP please talk to one of our receptionists.
