- The receptionist will check to see if you are within our practice area.
- If you are, the receptionist will give you a new patient registration pack. Each page needs to be completed and handed back into the practice.
Please note: Registration takes five working days. You can make a routine appointment with a doctor after this time.
- We ask that you have a photographic identification document and a proof of your address from the following table below:
Photographic ID Documents
Proof of address documents (valid within past 2 months)
Credit card / Bank statement
Army ID Card
|Council tax statement|
NHS staff smart card
- Once the new patient pack has been completed and handed back into the surgery, the receptionist will check the information to see if you require a new patient check with the doctor to set up repeat medication etc.
If you are taking regular/repeat medication you will need to be seen by a doctor before issuing. Documentary proof of your medication is essential to provide you with these prescriptions.
Disabled patients and residents of care homes may be registered by authorised persons acting on their behalf or by post.

Your Named GP
All our patients at Bower Mount Medical Practice have a Named "Usual GP".
We are asked to ensure that all our patients know the name of their "Named GP".
We would encourage our patients to check with reception or with the doctor, to confirm that they are certain of the identity of their named GP, when they have an appointment at the surgery.
