To Register as a Patient

In order to register at Lupset Health Centre, you must live within our catchment area which is outlined on our website.

If you do live within the catchment area and wish to register as a patient with the surgery, you simply need to come in and tell the receptionist you wish to register. You will then be asked to fill out a registration form and confirm your address with some photo ID and a recent bill with your address on it. You do not have to provide this information, but it is appreciated as it makes it easier to reconcile your data with that on the NHS “spine” and correctly register you with us.

You will then make an appointment for a New Patient Health Check with the Health Care Assistant. You will undergo some basic tests and the HCA will ask you about your health.

Until you attend your New Patient Health Check appointment you will not be fully registered with the practice. You must attend this appointment or we will not be able to register you.

Once you are registered with us, your records will be automatically transferred from your previous surgery. Please note that if you have medication on a repeat prescription this will have to be reviewed by a GP before being reissued by this practice.

Booking appointments

When contacting the practice to book an appointment, please be aware that you will be asked for information by the Medical Care Navigators. They need to know, to help them ensure that patients are seen by the most appropriate service to deal with the situation. Anything you tell them will be treated in absolute confidence.
