How to Register

The practice covers Middlestown, Overton, Netherton, Midgley, West Bretton, Flockton, Flockton Moor, Emley, Emley Moor, Briestfield, Grange Moor, Some parts of Thornhill Lees, Horbury, & Some parts of Ossett. If in doubt we will be pleased to give you exact details. Please ask at Reception.

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.

You can either ask for form FP1 at the main reception desk, bring your NHS Medical Card to surgery or download, complete and drop off the document pack below. Our reception staff will be happy to help you complete the necessary forms and answer any questions you may have. We would like to invite you for a new patient check and if you are over 40 years old and smoke or have smoked in the past we would like you to make an appointment for a lung health check (spirometry). 

It may be sometime before we get your full medical records and it is useful to have some information about you before they arrive. If you have or are a carer for someone please complete the supplementary form giving details, with permission to keep your details on record if necessary.

Catchment area

We are happy to accept new patients who are ordinarily resident in the UK and living within our practice boundary.

See if you live within our practice boundary by using the interactive map and postcode checker.

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.

Named Accountable GP

Patients registering at this practice are allocated a named GP. This however does not mean you have to see that GP and we would encourage patients to see any available clinical member of staff to trained to meet your needs.

All patients living in the Kirklees and Calderdale will have Dr Swan as their named GP. Patients living in Wakefield will now be registered with either Dr Barnsley or Dr Darby.

If you are not aware or have forgotten who your named GP is and you would like to know, please do not hesitate to contact us.
