pdfDenmark street surgery Information






Essential information we require:



• Name and address of your last doctor



• The address at which you were registered with that doctor



• If you are from overseas, your place of birth and the date you arrived in the UK



• Your signature




To Complete Your Registration


**The registering adult must attend the surgery in person with the completed documents for us to verify the identification documents between 07:30 – 18:00 .





You will be sent a text message when we have processed the information to inform you have been registered with the practice with the name of your allocated named GP.




If you wish to have new patient check then please make an appointment to see the practice nurse.




Once we have accepted you onto our list you will be registered with the Practice and may consult any doctor. 




Every patient is now allocated a named GP. This may be different from the GP you usually see. This does not change the way you book appointments. It means that one GP will have overall responsibility for your care at the surgery.

For continuity of care we encourage patients to try and book appointments with their usual GP. On some occasions this may not be possible so please be assured that all the other doctors that are available on that day will be able to help you with your problem.
