New Patient information
At Burton Croft Surgery we always welcome new patients who live within our practice boundary.
We will ask you to complete a new patient registration form so that we can get necessary details from you in order for you to be able to access our services and so that we can give you the high level of patient care that we pride ourselves upon. You can access the services at the surgery as soon as you are registered.
It can take time for your medical records to be transferred and to reach the surgery, so we will also ask that you complete a new patient questionnaire which will involve taking details on your medical history. This is so that we are fully aware of any medical information and medication that you are currently taking.
Please contact our reception team on 0113 274 4777 for further information.
How to Register
If you would like to register with the practice, please call in to the surgery. We will require some information about your health and lifestyle before your first appointment. We will ask you to complete a form called a GMS1:
We also need the following
- Proof of identity, such as photo identity, such as your passport or driving licence.
- Proof of your address, such as a recent utility bill (gas, electricity, water or phone bill, but not a mobile phone bill) or council tax bill.
You will be registered with the GP practice, rather than an individual GP but you will be allocated a named GP responsible for your care at the point of registration.
If you prefer to see a specific GP, the practice can note this in your records. However, you may have to wait longer to see your preferred GP or see someone else if your preferred GP is unavailable.
When you register with our practice, you'll be invited to make an appointment for a health check within six months.
Health checks are usually done by the practice nurse, who will ask you about your personal and family medical history. They will also ensure that any tests or checks you need are up to date, such as measuring your blood pressure or arranging cervical screening.
