New Patient Health Checks
All new patients will be asked to attend for a health check with one of our Health Care Assistants. This gives us the opportunity to meet you, discuss any health problems you might have and offer health care advice before your medical records arrive from your last doctor. Failure to attend for a health check will compromise your on going care and may delay your registration.
