The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice catchment area.
If you are currently registered with another practice within the Redditch area we advise you remain with your current practice until such a time that you are asked to find an alternative practice for reasons such as moving out of your practice catchment area.
As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
You may print off a registration pack, complete it and bring it in with two forms of ID details of accepted documents are noted in the pack but must include one form of photo identification and one of proof of address dated within the last three months.
For children aged 5 years of age and under we ask you to present your child's red book health record at the time of registering and please note we cannot register a new baby without their NHS number.
