New Patient Registration
To register as a patient first check that you live in our practice area which includes Battle, Netherfield, Mountfield, Telham, Catsfield and Crowhurst. It does not include Sedlescombe, Ninfield, Hastings, St Leonards-on-Sea, Dallington, Brightling or Robertsbridge.
To register with our practice you would need to bring proof of your ID and a current utility bill or similar as a proof of your address. You can register rest of your family at the same time. If you have your NHS cards that you received when you registered with your previous GP please bring them in, if you cannot find these, we can supply registration forms.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Your Usual Doctor
Following changes in GP services in England, patients are registered with a particular "named" GP in the practice. Patients can express a preference to see any GP but need to understand that if they want to see a GP urgently, they have to accept whoever is available, unless they choose to wait for a routine non-urgent appointment with their preferred GP.
