It is the policy of this practice that all new patients applying to register with us provide evidence of their residency in our practice area. Patients already residing in the UK will need to provide current proof of address e.g. a copy of a utility bill, a solicitor’s letter or rent book, dated within the last three months.
New patients arriving from overseas need to provide similar proof of residency plus their passport and any relevant visas.
If you have been issued with an NHS medical card you will also need to bring this with you when registering. If you have been registered previously with a doctor in the UK, you will need to know their name and address to complete your registration.
The receptionist will provide you with a registration pack and take you through the registration procedure. Once the required documents are signed, return the completed pack to the receptionist for processing. Any regular medication, including contraception will need to be recorded on the patient questionnaire.
Please ensure that you book a routine appointment with a doctor to obtain your first prescription from the surgery. We will not refuse an application for registration on the basis of the applicant’s race, gender, age, sexual orientation, social class, religion, appearance, disability or medical condition. We will however refuse applications made by those living outside our practice area.
The practice list is currently open and we accept patients who live in the following inner boundary:
- Cleadon Village
- Sunderland SR6 postcodes
If in doubt, please check with Reception.
