A registration form must be completed on both sides along with a health questionnaire and your preference in relation to your summary care record.
You may also be asked to provide proof of your identity and/or proof of address. For patients entering the UK, a copy of your passport and/or visa will be required.
It is helpful if you can also provide a list of any medications your are taking.
This information is then passed to the GP and a decision will be made within 5 days. We ask that patients contact the practice regarding the outcome of their application to join the practice.
Once you are registered your records will automatically be requested electronically from your previous GP. You will then be invited to attend an appointment for a new patient health check. This will complete the registration process.
We are a veteran friendly practice and are working towards our registration for Veteran Friendly Accreditation.
All applications to join the practice are treated equally with no discrimination.
If your application is refused a reason will be given in writing at your request.
**Parkside Medical Practice will NOT be registering patients who live 'Out of Area' under the new voluntary arrangements that were introduced by NHS England from 5.1.2015.
The inner boundary for registration includes the WS8 postcode.
Our outer boundary includes some parts of WS3, WS7, WS9 & WS11 .
A larger version of the boundary map is available in surgery.
Please ask at reception to check if your address is within our boundary.
Our aim is to focus our resources on patients who have full permanent registration with us.
