HOW TO JOIN MOATFIELD SURGERY
If you wish to register with the practice, please print the registration form and health questionnaire, complete both in full, sign the registration form, provide a blood pressure reading and hand both to the Receptionist who may be able to assist with any issues encountered during form completion. The form must be received signed together with the health questionnaire to enable us to provide appropriate care until your medical notes reach the practice. A registration pack is also available from reception. Once we have received all the necessary documentation, these will be processed. Due to the considerable volume of forms received, please allow at least 5 working days before making an appointment to enable the clinician to have access to your details when they see you.
Moatfield Surgery operates within its published boundary and does not accept patients who reside outside this defined area. Patients should note that if your address is outside of this area you will be asked to register with another surgery. Please see our boundary area below.
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
Since 2004, patients are registered with the practice not a specific GP. All patients registered at the surgery have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.

How to register
To register as a patient you will need to be ordinarily resident within the practice area. New patient registration documentation is available above to download but must be received signed. Online submission will be regarded as pre-registration only. A hardcopy pack is available from our Reception desk, including information on what the practice requires.
Patients should bear in mind that the registration process may take several days to complete, to ensure that all agencies are informed. Please allow sufficient time before making an appointment for your medical notes to reach the practice from your previous surgery. This is for your own safety so our clinical team knows your medical history when discussing matters with you.
Patients have a responsibility to inform the practice of any changes of your personal details so our records are accurate and up to date for you. If you have moved to a new address it is particularly important that you inform the practice as soon as is practical, as the new address may no longer fall within the area the practice serves.
Patients may have to register with another practice and we will write to you and inform you accordingly. If you do not respond to our notification your registration may be removed from our practice list. Details of practices in your area of residency can be found on the NHS Choices website.
When you arrive at the surgery for your appointment you can check in, in one of two ways:
- Using our touch-screen self check-in system
- By reporting to the reception
Our simple touch-screen self check-in system enables patients to book themselves in without having to go to reception and helps to keep queues to a minimum, so please use it whenever possible. If you need help please speak to the receptionist.
