New Patient Registration
We are pleased to accept any new patients living within our practice area, which covers an area approximately 4 square miles. If you register at Hillside Surgery we can dispense medication to you. We do not restrict patients' choice to only their registered GP, which means patients can choose to see any of our doctors and may even choose to see different doctors for different problems.
To register you will need to complete a few forms and provide ID (e.g. photo driving licence or passport) and proof of address (e.g. utility bill). Feel free to come into the surgery during our open hours and collect the required forms, together with a Practice Booklet - or download the New Registration Form here.
Once you have completed the Registration Form clearly, completing all areas, especially with your NHS number (if you do not have this, it can be obtained from your previous surgery), New Patient Information form and Alcohol Questionnaire then return the forms to the surgery and allow 3 to 4 days for us to register you. You can then make an appointment for a New Patient Health Check.

New Patient Health Check
We offer every new patient that registers with us a new patient health check. This is a 30 minute appointment with the Healthcare Assistant who will check your height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, urinalysis, discuss your family history and the completed alcohol questionnaire.
When your baby is born the parents are issued with a form by the midwife which will show your baby’s NHS number. Please bring this into the surgery when registering your baby as a patient.
