If you wish to join the practice please check on our practice area page to ensure you are within the surgery boundary as spaces are limited and we can only accept patient that fall within the surgery catchment area.
If you are within the boundary we would ask for identification within the last 3 months this must include your name, address and a photographic I.D. if this is found to be satisfactory you will be given a form to complete and asked to attend the surgery for a new patient medical.
Nationally, patients are no longer registered with an individual GP but the practice, will always try to accomodate a request for an appointment based on your clinical needs, unfortunatly this may not be with your named GP.
Please note: you are not registered with the surgery until you have had a new patient medical - if you do not attend after 6 weeks we will inform the Health Authority whereupon your details will be returned to them and you will remain registered at your previously used practice.
Please note patient acceptance at The Chestnuts Surgery and registration is at the discretion of the Practice Manager and may be refused or withdrawn at any time.
