Join the practice
During the COVID-19 National Emergency we are only able to accept new patient registrations electronically at this time.
Patients living in the following post code areas are able to register with the practice: SO14 1, 2, 3 5 and 7. Patients outside of this area will be signposted to surgeries more local to their address.
Once your registration has been accepted, you will be able to consult with any of the doctors in the practice via the eCONSULT service.
You may not always be able to contact the doctor of your choice immediately, but you will always be able to consult with another doctor or nurse within the practice when you need to.
Please complete a new patient registration form and send it via email to the practice at firstname.lastname@example.org Patients will be asked to confirm proof of identity and date of birth and we will contact you by phone to verify this. This is used to check your details match with the information held on the NHS central patient registry and that your previous medical notes are passed on to the practice.
You will not be refused registration or appointments because you don’t have a proof of address or personal identification at hand. This also applies if you are an asylum seeker, refugee, a homeless patient or an overseas visitor, whether lawfully in the UK or not.
If you fall under one of the above mentioned patient groups, please download one of the ‘How to register with a GP’ patient leaflets below and bring it with you when you register with the practice. If you have problems registering with the practice, there is advice on what do to and where to go for further support.
- Leaflet for asylum seekers and refugees
- Leaflet for gypsy, traveller and Roma communities
- Leaflet for homeless patients
- Information for visitors from abroad about using the NHS
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is a printable version of this form, which you may fill out and send electronically to us with your registration form.
- Registration Form
- Health Questionnaire
- NEW Patient Registration Form (now editable in Microsoft Word)
When you register you will be asked for your mobile phone number and you will asked if you are happy for us to contact you by text.
With your consent we will text you to remind you of an appointment, to inform you of blood test results or to advise you if you are eligible for a flu vaccination during the Winter season.
It is very important to let us know if you change your mobile number.
Our aim here at the St Mary’s Surgery is to keep in you in good health and help you have an enjoyable and successful time at university.
