How to register
We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
Please note - If you have been previously registered with an NHS Doctor, you will be asked for supporting evidence of identity, i.e. NHS card, utility bill, driving licence. This ensures that the correct and relevant medical records are obtained. If you are a new NHS registration, you will asked to produce evidence of identity and proof of being "ordinarily resident" in the UK (more than 6 months), i.e. working visa and passport. If you are unable to produce these documents at the time of registration, your registration will be delayed. The process of registration does take 10 minutes or so whilst the receptionist checks and copies your identification and checks through your form. We will only register you once we have a fully completed form - to save time, please answer all the questions. Please try to avoid busy times at the start and end of the day when registering.
You can register by bringing along your NHS medical card or completing a form available from reception. We will make a note on your records if you prefer to see a particular doctor or nurse.
You can download the necessary registration forms from this web site. Click on the link below to print out an NHS GMS1 Registration form.
Please complete a GMS1 and the appropriate Park Road form for each person wishing to register.

We would like to offer all newly registered children under 16 a health check with a Nurse. Please book an appointment through reception.
Change of Address or Telephone Number
Please let us know if you change address or telephone number, please complete the 'Change of Address' form, this is available by on the link or from reception. Please note if you move away from the practice area you may be asked to register with a doctor closer to your new address.
We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system. Appointments can be booked by telephoning the surgery. You can book an appointment up to 6 weeks ahead. Urgent cases will be seen on the same day, but it may be necessary to wait a day or more to see a specific doctor.
Separate appointments are required for each person who needs to see the doctor.
It is helpful if you only present with one problem at each consultation.
Please let us know if you are unable to keep your booked appointment.
If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.
Telephone Consultations - Alternatively you can book to speak with a doctor or nurse over the phone for routine matters that may not need an appointment. Please ensure you give a phone number you can be reached on.
Telephone Triage - When we are full / or very busy you may be offered a Triage call from the Duty Doctor. The doctor may then arrange to see you, if necessary.
You are also entitled to advice over the phone at NHS Direct. For details click on the link on the homepage.

If you are off work for up to one working week / seven days then your employer may ask for a Sick Note. They are requesting a Self Certificate, which you complete yourself for the first working week (up to seven days) of illness. Illness lasting longer than seven days will require a Doctor's Note - see below.
Private Sick Notes
For a charge your doctor can produce a Private Sick Note for the first seven days of illness. We charge £16 because this note is not part of our routine NHS work as it is not 'essential' and Employers should, by Law, except a Self Certificate.
Now called 'Statement of Fitness to Work' of the 'Fit Note' sometimes called a Med 3. These notes replace all previous sick notes and allow a doctor to sign you off work or fit to work with advice. This however is at your employers discretion.
From time to time your GP may ask you to attend for some routine blood tests, this is often as part of your ongoing medication or health issues. You can always talk to your GP about what the tests are for and why. However a good resource is the www.patient.co.uk site. They have a lot of information about blood tests for you to read. Click this link to read more.
Test results for blood, x ray etc are available by talking to a receptionist. Your GP will have left a message for them to pass on to you, if you need more information then you would need to talk to your GP. It is best to ring after 14.00 hrs for test results.
