New Patient Registration
If you are new to the area and wish to register at our practice you will be asked to complete your NHS medical card and in addition to this our receptionist will provide you with a pack to complete.(This pack is currently under revision on-line)
You will also be asked to complete a medical questionnaire when registering as this allows the doctor to familiarise him/herself with your medical history.(This form is currently under revision on-line)
These cards and forms are retained by the practice to ease the registration process. You will be placed on the waiting list for a registration appointment which will include a brief medical check.
If you change your name, address or telephone number, please let us know and we will then update our records. When changing address please check with the receptionist that you still live within our catchment area.
If you have difficulty getting registered in the area you may be assigned to a GP by contacting Business Services Organisation 2 Franklin Street, Belfast, BT2 8DQ. Telephone no 03005550113.
The practice area extends to approximately six miles from Kircubbin.
