Pre-Registration

To register at Forest Hill Group Practice, please complete the below GMS1 Registration form along with the Medical History Form, Ethnicity Form, Screening Tools for Alcohol Form & HIV Testing Form.

Please hand in the completed form(s) to the reception team.  Depending on the information you provided in the Medical History Form, you will be advised whether to make an appointment with a Practice Nurse or GP. If however, you are not currently on regular medication and do not suffer with any of the conditions listed in the form, we will book an appointment for you to see the practice nurse for a new patient health check.

You are required to bring in 2 proof of address documents along with you.

Children 16 and under do not need to complete the registration form. An adult member of the family can register them by providing the required information and signing the registration application on their behalf.

As a patient, you have the right to express preference as to which GP you wish to see. However, if you require an appointment and your preferred GP is not available, you will be offered an appointment with another doctor. If you still wish to see your preferred GP you may have to wait longer.

You can also visit the surgery and the above forms will be provided.
