How to Register
Coxhoe Medical Practice welcomes patients from Coxhoe, Bowburn, Quarrington Hill and Cassop.
Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor and we will ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy below and why we ask for this). Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
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 see this NHS guidelines for further details of how this works.
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.
Named Accountable GP
You will be assigned to a doctor who will be your “Named Accountable GP” as required by the NHS, however, you can choose to be seen by any clinician as long as they are available.
You will be added to the practice list, not an individual doctor. You can ask to be seen by any of the doctors in the practice although it will not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice on a particular day and time.
Step 1: Complete online registration form
Our online registration form will collect your details, a brief outline of your medical history and record your preferences. This information may be added to your record and will allow us to begin to provide you with medical services.
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.
One form of identity must contain a photo of yourself and the other must provide evidence of your current address. You may upload your forms online.
