Please confirm that you live within our Practice Catchment Area:
Our online registration form will collect your details, a brief outline of your medical history and record your preferences. This information may be added to your record and will allow us to begin to provide you with medical services.
You do not need proof of ID to register with a GP, but it might help if you can upload a copy of your photo identification (passport, driving license or EU Identity card).
You can upload a copy of your identity with the 'Upload ID' button below. If you prefer to submit your documents in person please speak to the reception team.
If you prefer not to register online please complete the following steps:
- Use our Practice Catchment Area Tool to ensure you live with our catchment area.
- Download and complete a Practice Registration form (also available from reception).
- Download and complete a GMS1 Permanent Patient Registration form (also available from reception).
- Return your completed registration forms to reception along with your photo id.
The doctors are able to see patients who are temporary residents for a maximum of 3 months in our practice catchment area should they need medical help. 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 photo ID (passport or GB drivers license) and a completed Temporary Resident Registration form (also available from reception).
To register we require photo ID (passport, drivers licence or EU Identity card).
If you are homeless or of no fixed abode, then although it is helpful to have photo ID you can register without any.
Any other ID such as an HC2 Certificate, Rough Sleepers' Identity badge, Hostel registration or mail forwarding letter would also be helpful but again we will register you even if you don't have these. As we know it is more important that you can access health care when you need it.
If you are unsure on how to register, please ask at reception and they can help you to complete the registration process.
All patients registered at Shirland Medical have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. Your registered GP is also your named accountable and your allocated GP. Your allocated GP will be responsible for the provision of your healthcare. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
New patients are allocated a Doctor on Registration.
If you are unsure of who is your named Doctor please ask at reception.
