If you live within our practice catchment area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your post code, so check directly by clicking the above link.

Registering as a Permanent patient - Once you have checked the above link and if you are in the catchment area, please download, print, fill and complete the GMS1 form and The Orchard Surgery Registration form and email these to orchard.surgery1@nhs.net, which will provide us with useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Please use the same forms for registering adults and children. If you are registering a child under 16 years of age, we will need a full list of their vaccines with the forms to complete our registration process at the practice. If the forms are not fully completed and appropriate information is not provided on the forms, this will further delay your registration at the practice. Registrations will take up to 2 weeks. Please also remember to activate your online patient access during the registration period, this helps you to book appointments and request medication at your own convenience.
