If you would like to register with the Practice please use this form.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU PROVIDE AS MUCH INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE
Once you have completed the form you will need to come into the Practice with one proof of ID and one proof of address to complete your registration (Driving Licence, Passport, Utility bill etc). For children we will need a copy of their birth certificate or passport so we can verify their name and date of birth.
Please allow 5 working days for us to process your registration before making a routine appointment – if you have an urgent issue, then please continue to contact us. At the same we will register you for Patient Online Services, and you will be able to collect your log on details again from our Reception.
All of our new patients are required to attend a ‘new patient’ appointment, so that we can introduce you to our Practice, establish your current state of health, check your blood pressure and offer further services as appropriate. Once registered please make an appointment to attend the surgery at your earliest convenience.
(The new patient health check is currently suspended because of COVID-19)
You can register at the Practice if you live in our area. Please see our Practice Patient Boundary Map.
Please note that the Upper Heyford housing development is outside of our Practice area.
Please obtain your NHS Number from your old GP Practice if you don’t know it. We require this to ensure that you are registered correctly and that we can transfer your medical records to us.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

If you have a EHIC card /PRC/S1, how will you data be used?
By using your EHIC or PRC for NHS treatment costs your EHIC or PRC data and GP appointment data will be shared with NHS secondary care (hospitals) and NHS Digital solely for the purposes of cost recovery. Your clinical data will not be shared in the cost recovery process. Your EHIC, PRC or S1 information will be shared with The Department for Work and Pensions for the purpose of recovering your NHS costs from your home country.
If you are visiting from another EEA country and do not hold a current EHIC (or Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC))/S1, you may be billed for the cost of any treatment received outside of the GP practice, including at a hospital
Use of Texts, Emails and Messaging
Mobile – Texts: To improve our service to patients we send appointment and medical review reminders by text, and encourage patients to opt in to this.
Home Phone – Messages: We are trialing phone voicemail so we can send appointment and medical review reminders to patients who do not have a mobile phone. Patients access the message by entering their date of birth into their phone.
For further information on our use of texts,emails and messaging, and the safeguards in place, please see our Information Technology page.
Dispensary & Prescriptions
We dispense directly to patients who live more than a mile (as the crow flies) from a community pharmacy; we currently dispense to 3,500 patients. To see if this applies to you please use our mapping tool. Please sign up to this service if applicable.
Our on-site dispensary is open between 08:30 and 18:00
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
We use the EPS. This means your prescription is sent electronically to whichever pharmacy you have elected to use, saving both time and cost as well as being more convenient for you.
Summary Care Record
A Summary Care Record is an electronic record used nationally across England and is available to authorised healthcare professionals who care for you in urgent or emergency situations . This might be if you are ill when you are away from home or when your GP surgery is closed. It is based on your GP record and contains key information to support emergency care such as: medicines you take; any allergies you have; or any bad reactions you have had to medicines. This is now created automatically for you. You can opt to include Additional Information, including significant medical history, medication, management of long term conditions, end of life care, immunisations and communication preferences (Sensitive information like fertility treatment STIs, pregnancy terminations etc are not automatically included unless you request them to be included). We recommend that you OPT IN to Additional Information being included in your SCR.
