Register with us as a New Patient

We welcome anyone eligible to register with The New Mill Street Surgery. You can either register on-line or complete a paper registration form (this is also available at reception). 

We don’t ask for any proof of residency, but to register as a regular patient you need to reside in our catchment area or plan to reside for at least 3 months. 

We only ask for photo proof of ID so we can enable your online services. You can verify your ID if you register using our online service and login using your NHS app login, if you do that, we will register you for online services automatically as part of your registration process.  

Registration will need to be completed before you can book an appointment with us. 

We will send a text/call you to confirm you are registered with us. 

Please allow five working days from submitting the form for registration to be completed. 

You will remain registered with your previous GP until you are fully registered with us. We cannot issue any repeat prescriptions until we receive confirmation of your past medical history and medication so do ask your previous GP for a supply. 

If you are unsure on how to register, please ask at reception and they can help you to complete the registration process. 

All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking. You may be asked to see/speak to a GP or see one of our nursing staff to complete your registration.  

You will be allocated a named GP on registration, but you will be registered with the practice rather than that individual GP. You may see any of the doctors. 

Please check you live within our Catchment Area
