How to register

We accept patients living in at SE2 and SE28 postcodes. For existing patients who move outside of these postcodes, you can still stay registered if you are moving to our ‘outer boundary’ which includes some SE18 streets – please enquire at reception

You may register as a patient during the surgery core opening hours at any time. However on busy times such as Monday mornings and afternoons you may have to wait a long time to complete the registration process.

We would encourage new patients to register on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (preferably not Tuesdays after a bank holiday) from 11.45 – 2.30. These are the least busy times at the surgery

if you over 16 you must attend the surgery in person to register, under 16’s can be registered by their legal guardian i.e. parent. For under 16’s please bring in their ‘Red Book’

We require 2 proofs of address, if you are over 16 years old, dated within the last 3 months. Examples of suitable documentation include a utility bill, or council tax bill. Mobile phone bills are not accepted.

Proof of identity is also required. Although not essential we would prefer this to be photo ID, such as a passport, driving license, or national identity card. Non photo proof of ID includes a medical /NHS card/ Letter if previously registered with a Dr in England, or a birth certificate, if you do not have photo ID

A completed GMS1 form is also required. This form can be obtained from the surgery reception or printed off from the link below. Or you can complete the GMS1 form online by following this link

We recommend that all new patients over the age of 5 years undertake a health check with a Practice Nurse or HCA. Failure to do so or failing to attend for a New Patient Medical more than 3 times will mean that your registration will not be processed and you will not be able to use the services of this Surgery and will need to find another Doctor in the area.
