New Patient Registration

To register at Forest Hill Group Practice, please complete the complete the New Patient Registration Form online.

REGISTER AT OUR GP PRACTICE

You can also download and complete a GMS1 form to register

 We will ask you to book an appointment to see a HealthCare Assistant for a New Patient Health Check.

You are required to upload copies of two documents: of proof of address (utility bill or bank statement issued within last 3 month) and photo ID. 

Children of 16 years old and under can not complete the registration form. A parent or guardian can register them by providing the required information and signing the registration application on their behalf. It is recommended to register children at same surgery as their mother was registered.

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.

Everyone in the UK has the right to free care from a GP. If you don’t have proof of ID or address, you can still register.

Immigration status or nationality don’t matter - reception won’t ask for immigration documents and won’t share your information with the Home Office unless serious crime is involved.
