Register with us as a New Patient

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please check the map below to see if your address falls within our catchment area.

It's simple to register with the practice, simply fill out our secure online form and attach copies of your proof of address and identity.

If you are on repeat medications, you will need to see a doctor before requesting your next prescription.

There are practical reasons why we might need to be assured that people are who they say they are, or to check where they live. Seeing some form of ID will help to ensure the correct matching of a patient to the NHS central patient registry, thereby ensuring any previous medical notes are passed onto us.

 

Do you live within our practice area?

The practice area covers Henleaze, Westbury Park, Westbury-On-Trym, Stoke Bishop and some parts of Redland.

The boundaries are: Sea Mills Lane, Bell Barn road, Canford Lane, Doncaster Road, Kingsholm Road, Kendon Drive, Wellington Hill West, Gloucester Road, Lower Redland Road, Rockleaze and Portway.

In common with all practices, our list is open only to patients living within the practice area. If you move out of the area you are kindly asked to register with a new practice that covers that address.

 

Named GP

All patients at Fallodon Way Medical Centre have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating their care.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP please talk to one of our receptionists.

 

Temporary Residents

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
