How to Register as a New Patient
Adults (16 years +)
Please collect the necessary documents from reception, which will include a patient registration form, a new patient questionnaire and an ethnicity form. As part of our registration process we will ask you for evidence of your identity and your right to access free NHS Medical Services. This could mean asking you to produce an E128, E112, adequate proof of your intention to reside and work within this country for at least six months, or any other such legal documentation as is required to ascertain your eligibility. If such documentation can be provided please bring this with you at the time of registration.
Registrations now incorporate a machine here-in referred to as the practice’s BP machine. Simply put, this machine takes your blood pressure as your blood pressure is now necessary to register. Alongside this is equipment to check your height and weight. This eliminates the need to arrange an appointment with the nurse before the registration can be completed. New patient registrations also require a copy of your repeat prescription from your previous surgery, if you are on repeat medication. Once this is all complete and present with the registration form, your registration can be promptly processed and you will be registered.
If such documentation cannot be produced and we are in any doubt as to whether we can register you as an NHS patient at our practice, then we ask you to contact Cardiff Registrations, Shared Services Partnership on 01495 332000 for further advice.
