New and Existing Patients
If you live within our practice area, and would like to register with the Practice, please complete one of our registration forms, available to download below, or alternatively please complete our online registration form.
Each patient that wishes to register is required to complete and submit a Registration Form and produce two forms of ID.
- Photographic ID e.g. passport or photocard driving licence.
- Proof of address in the form of any up to date utility bill or bank statement.
If you do not have ANY form of photographic ID, an alternative form of ID must be provided.
A copy of our practice leaflet and accompanying information will be provided and you will be offered an appointment to meet your new doctor.
You have the right to express a preference for seeing a particular Doctor at the practice, and we will do our best to comply with your request.
Things to know before choosing a GP Practice away from your home address
- These new arrangements are voluntary for GP practices. If the practice has no capacity at the time or feels it is not clinically appropriate or practical for you to be registered so far away from home then they can still refuse registration. The practice should explain their reason to you.
- Once you have decided to register with a GP practice away from your home address, you will need to choose a practice that is accepting registrations from outside of their traditional practice boundaries. You can find this information by contacting the GP practice directly. They may have this information on their practice website or on their practice leaflet but the best way will be to contact them by telephone and asking a receptionist.
- Because of the greater distance to your home, the GP practice may register you without the responsibility to provide you with a home visit when you are not well enough to go to the practice yourself.
- When you register with a practice away from home, without home visits, you will be given information about what you should do in those circumstances where you need to access care whilst at home.
- You may, if your circumstances change and it is no longer clinically appropriate or practical for you to be registered away from home, be asked to consider registering with a practice closer to home where your care may be better provided at that time.
- Should you become too ill to attend your registered practice in person or your practice advises that they are unable to assist you over the phone, contact NHS 111 who will direct you to the right service for your needs.
Updating your information
Change of Address
You are able to change your address using our “Change of contact Details Form”. Alternatively you can login to your Patient Access account and follow the ‘change contact details’ link.
Out of area patients
Due to an increase in demand and to reinforce our emphasis in providing care in the local community, we are no longer accepting out of area patients. As a Practice there are boundaries that we need to strictly adhere to and if as a current patient you notify us that you have changed your address and are no longer living in our catchment area, you will be given 28 days to register with a new GP Practice in your local area. By registering with a local GP Practice this will ensure that you receive the most appropriate care closer to your home.
Change of Personal Details
When changing a name either a copy Marriage Certificate/ Decree Absolute or a copy of the Deed Poll will need to be provided.
Nicknames and short versions of names cannot be used on our clinical system. Your name should appear as it does on your birth certificate or deed poll document.
If your date of birth is incorrect on your records, we will require proof via either your passport or birth certificate before we can make any changes.
The area covered by the practice is approximately six miles radius of Tiverton.
Use our tool to below to check if you are within the practice boundary.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
Please note that if you were previously registered with a Doctor outside the UK then the Practice will not have access to your medical notes. All patients who register from abroad should contact their previous Doctor to obtain copies of their notes.
We have the right to refuse to register patients if they have a violent flag against their record.

Please complete one form for each family member.
Step 2: Upload scans of photo identity and proof of address
Please deliver to the practice copies of two forms of your identity.
