JOINING THE OUNDLE SURGERY
Do you live within our Registering Boundary Area?
How to register
To register as an individual or for everyone in your household you will need you to visit the surgery to complete a registration form and provide us with the following information:
- Two forms of identification one of which should include your Name, Date of Birth & Address. EG. Passport or Driving Licence.
- An existing Health Card (or NHS number if you don't have one)
- Patients who have come from overseas must bring their passport
All new patients will also need to complete a new patient health questionnaire giving details of your important past medical history, medication you are on, allergies etc.
To save time when registering, please fill in the registration forms below, which you may print off and bring to the surgery with your ID. Please note, all patients are required to fill in all forms below.

Named Accountable GP
All patients are allocated a named accountable GP upon registration.
The named GP is largely a role of oversight, ensuring you have one GP in the Practice who is responsible for ensuring that work is carried out on your behalf.
Although you will have a named GP, you are entitled to see any GP or Nurse in the Practice.
Temporary Patient Registration
As well as permanent registrations, we can also register people if they are staying in the practice area on a temporary basis – either up to 15 days or over 15 days and up to 3 months. You will need to provide the name and full address of your own surgery.
Out of Area Registration
New arrangements introduced in January 2015 give people a greater choice when choosing a GP practice. Patients may approach any GP practice, even if they live outside the practice area, to see if they will be accepted onto the patient list.
The new arrangements mean GP practices now have the option to register patients who live outside the practice area but without any obligation to provide home visits.
Before considering Out-of-Area requests, A GP Practice should only register out of area patients AFTER they have sought and obtained assurances from regional NHS England teams or their CCG that arrangements for urgent GP services, including home visits, are in place for individual patients at their place of residence.
Practices are strongly advised that they should not register any patients without those assurances.
Practices are not obliged to register patients outside of their boundary, therefore, we will only consider out of area registrations if we have assurances that urgent GP services are in place for the address provided.
Existing patients moving outside of our boundary will also need to fill in an out-of-area application pack, and the above also applies to them.
This new arrangement only applies to GP practices and patients who live in England. For further information visit the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/gps/patient-choice-of-gp-practices/
