New Patient Registration
Please bring your NHS number, some photo ID and proof of your address (Utility bill, bank statement etc) to reception. If you do not have a medical card our receptionist can provide you with a registration form for you to complete. This form may also be used if you wish to register as an organ and/or blood donor.
You must supply: NHS number, Photo ID & Proof of address
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire about your medical history. In addition, you will need a new patient check with a practice nurse for the registration process to be completed. Please book an appointment with the receptionist.
If you are taking any regular medication you will need an appointment to see the doctor before a repeat prescription can be issued. Please bring along all your medicines to this appointment.
We are required to provide a named and accountable GP for all patients.
Yours is the Registered and Usual GP automatically allocated when registering at Castle Healthcare Practice. If you require more information please ask at reception. This may not necessarily be the GP that you choose to see.
Please use NG2 7RN if using a Sat Nav device to find the surgery
