Registering with the Practice
Call in with your Medical Card (if you have one) and proof of address. You will be required to complete a form (GMS1) and be asked a few relevant questions by the Reception staff. You may be asked to make an appointment for a new patient check with the Practice Nurse or fill out a questionnaire.
You will also be required to bring two forms of identification with you:
- a passport or Full driving Licence (both parts)
- a utility bill with your name and address on it
You may choose to register with any doctor in the practice. A practice booklet will also be available when you register.
We are always happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you if they need a Doctor or Nurse urgently. They will need to fill out a short form for the information to be returned to their own Doctor. Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for completion of the necessary forms.
What to do when the surgery is closed
If you need urgent medical attention when the surgery is closed you should dial 111. This will connect you to the NHS 111 service free of charge, which is provided by Derbyshire Health United. You will be assessed and directed to the most appropriate point of care for your particular needs.
You can also dial 111 if you require health information.
If you require an appointment at the surgery please contact us during normal opening hours.
If you are calling on behalf of someone else please have the following information available, such as:
- date of birth
- current medication
- name of their GP
If considered necessary you will be referred to a duty Doctor or Nurse Practitioner who will contact you and either give further telephone advice, or ask you to attend a local centre or, in appropriate circumstances, visit you at home.
