JOINING THE PRACTICE
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
All patients registered at the Practice have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.

How to register
If you wish to register at the Headlands Surgery you will be required to call in to collect a registration pack.
Everyone over the age of 16 will be required to attend a new patient interview and complete a new patient questionnaire.
You will be required to bring with you your NHS medical card, if you have one, and evidence of identity i.e. passport, driving licence, official identity card, birth or marriage certificate and evidence of address i.e. utility bill – for example gas, electric or council tax, bank statement or tenancy agreement.
These documents must be dated within the last 3 months.
A new patient health check is part of the registration process and is carried out by our health care assistants.
This is a 15 minute appointment and will be an opportunity for us to check your blood pressure, height, weight, urine and to establish current and past medical and family history.
