GPs and their wider team need time to give patients the best care they possibly can. You can help free up time for those who really need expert advice by considering three alternatives before booking an appointment. Find out more

Bogus callers

The Practice has been informed by the Health & Social Care Board that some patients have been contacted by 'bogus callers' claiming to be linked to the Practice in order to sell products or extract financial information including bank details.  Some bogus callers have asked questions about medical conditions and current medication.

If you receive a call of this nature, DO NOT disclose any personal information and contact the surgery immediately.

New Patients map.jpg

New patients who live within the Practice boundaries are welcome. This covers an area within a 5.5 mile radius of the Practice. Please see the map.

To register with the Practice, you must complete registration forms, either HS200 (if your previous GP was within the UK) or HSCR1 (anyone registering from outside the UK) - these forms are available at the surgery or below.

HSCR1 Registration Form

Dr Ruddell's New Patient Medical Questionnaire

ALL new patients are required to produce photographic ID eg. passport, driving licence (both parts) and proof of address (bank statement or utility bill from within the last 3 months).  All new registrations need approval by the Business Services Organisation which takes 2 weeks or more depending on different circumstances. 

New patients are required to attend for a new patient health check.  You will receive a letter inviting you to make an appointment when your registration has been approved.

Where patients are requesting to join the Practice list, the Practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.

Please note that if you move out of the Practice you will need to register at a practice closer to your new address.
