We are a safe surgery

We will ensure that our practice offers a welcoming space for everyone who seeks to use our services. We will ensure that a lack of identification, proof of address, or immigration status do not prevent patient registration.

Don’t have documents? Don’t worry. We might ask for ID or proof of address. But if you don’t have any and you live in our practice area, you can still register with us. We won’t ask for immigration documents.

Your nationality or immigration status do not affect your right to register here.

Everyone living in England has the right to free care from a GP.

Ask reception for an interpreter if you find it difficult to communicate in English.

If you are worried about giving us your address, please let us know.

Your information is safe with us.
