Four easy steps to register with a doctor/GP
1. Find your nearest GP practice by postcode by using the search tool on the homepage of this site, by calling 0300 200 0017 or by using the alternative contact details at the end of this page.
2. If you need to decide between practices, contact them and ask for a copy of their practice booklet or visit the GP section of NHS Choices for information.
3. Visit the practice of your choice, if they are accepting new patients, with your medical card to complete a registration form. It is helpful if you have your NHS number when you register at the surgery. Please use the following link for more information on how to find your NHS number.
4. Once the practice has agreed to register you as a patient, you will be offered an appointment for a new patient medical assessment with either the GP or nurse.
