Registering as a Patient
At least one member of the household of those wishing to apply to join the practice must do so in person.
Applications from prospective patients are considered using criteria which do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition. Any applicant not accepted will be given written reasons at the time.
If you are registering with this practice having recently entered the United Kingdom from abroad, please bring your immunisation history and your childrens immunisation history if applicable. This will enable us to keep a more accurate health record.
Patients, or in the case of children or incapable adults, applicants, may indicate a preference to be seen by a particular doctor or category of doctor. This may be for all problems or for a specific condition.
The practice will endeavour to comply with such a preference but may not be able to do so, for example, if the doctor is away, does not provide the service required or is unable to provide the service at the appropriate time.
The practice covers all of the Borough of Middlesbrough together with Ormesby, Overfields, Nunthorpe and Spencerbeck in the Borough of Redcar and Cleveland. Full details of the practice area are displayed on a map in the surgery.
All newly registered patients are invited to attend for a new patient examination.
Any patient not seen at the practice within the previous three years is able to request a health check.
Patients aged 75 years and over may, not more than once in twelve months request a health check
