Register Online

New patients just need to fill in an online form to get started. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS Number. The service matches you to the Patient Demographics System (PDS). Where the service cannot match you – ie; you have never been registered in the UK before, the practice may ask for forms of ID for verification processes.

This service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Register at the practice

If you would rather register with a paper form, please call into the surgery and ask reception for the two forms along with copies of two forms of proof of identity.

Summary Care Records

Important information regarding your NHS medical records

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care situations.

The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from, and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.  This information will be available to authorised health care staff providing your care anywhere in England.
We recommend that you read the information available from the NHS by visiting NHS Digital Summary Care Records (SCR) or by telephoning the helpline on 0300 123 3020.
Your decision is required when registering with Northumberland Park Medical Group.
