If you live within our practice area (see map below) you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
When looking at the map the inner boundary (pink shaded area) represents the residential area within which we will accept new patients onto our list. The outer boundary (orange shaded area) is an extended area and existing patients moving home can remain on our list, if the new address is inside this area.

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
We do not need proof of ID or written proof of address for you to register with the surgery as a patient. But, if you would like to have online access to your record, in order to provide this, we do require Photo ID and proof of address. Sorry, this bit can feel a little confusing. Please ask at reception if you need clarification.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
You may download and print off the registration forms, fill them out and email them to souccg.albion@. nhs.net
Register for Online Patient Services
If you wish to register for online patient services, which allows you access to your medical record online, please download and complete the form below. In addition proof of ID and address are needed.
You can find out more about these services on our 'Patient Access' page.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.
You will be allocated a named GP on registration but you will be registered with the practice rather than that individual GP. You may see any of the doctors. However, if you do have a preferred GP, please let us know when making an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
New patients are allocated a Doctor on Registration.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
