How to register as a patient

Updated on 19th July 2019 at 10:52 am


We are currently accepting new patient registrations for patients who live within the practice boundary. The areas that the practice usually cover include: Whitley Bay, Cullercoats, Tynemouth, North Shields and Shiremoor. Please check with reception if you are unsure whether you live within the practice boundary.

In order to register, you will need to come to the surgery with the following documentation:

  • Photographic I.D. (i.e. Driving Licence/Passport)
  • Your NHS number (available¬†from your old surgery)
  • Proof of address (Letter dated within the last 3 months)

You will be asked to complete a health (GMS1) and medical history questionnaire (New Patient Questionnaire ).

It may take some time before your medical notes reach us from your previous practice and therefore it can take a few weeks before your registration is fully processed. During this time we will be unable to make an appointment for you or process any medication requests.

If you need medical assistance during this time we would advise contacting your previous GP surgery until you are fully registered with us. If you no longer have a GP practice, you can contact NHS 111 or visit your local walk in centre. For anything urgent you can call 999 or go straight to A&E.

If you have any queries regarding the registration process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
