We DO NOT accept registration for patients living outside the practice area (see practice area map).
To register as a patient with Somerford Grove practice you must:
a) Live in the practice area (a copy of which is available at reception)
b) Provide proof of your identity, eg, passport, driving licence, European ID card (photo ID is required as we provide online services
c) Provide official proof of your current address (in the practice area), eg, tenancy agreement, bank statement, utility bill or documentation from a reputable source - in your name and dated within the last 3 months
Please note: If you are unable to provide the documents requested, you can still register with the practice and provide the documents at a later date.
We will need you to complete a registration form and bring it with you into the surgery, or it can be completed on the day at reception. You will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire.
Our preferred times for registering patients is between 12:30 and 15:30 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday. At other times we may not have the capacity to deal with your enquiry and you may be asked to come back to register.
All new patients over the age of 5 are requested to attend a registration check appointment with our healthcare assistant, as your medical record may not be forwarded to the practice for some time and we need to establish your current health and any ongoing medical issues. Please book this appointment for a registration check when you register.
