Practice Boundary Area
Non-urgent advice: Important Patient Notice
Our practice is within the West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group Area. We can only look after patients who live within our catchment area. Our map below shows an inner and outer boundary (not updated as yet due to technical issues), but we ONLY take patients from the inner boundary location. Please be aware that our catchment area does not cover patients who live in Wales as they fall under a different Clinical Commissioning Group Area. If you move over the border to Wales you will be asked to register in that area. Please check the inner boundary map before registering on-line. If unsure, please ring us to check on 01244 385553.
We are using a new online service called “Register with a GP surgery” that makes it easy to register with this GP surgery.
Just fill in this quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number. The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register. Paper forms are still available if you need one. Contact our reception team here: 01244 385553.
You can still register through our website as follows. The surgery is currently accepting new patients. We require you to complete the official GMS1 purple registration form (both front and back) plus the Patient Questionnaire (see below). You can download both and print off at home if your prefer or we can post one out to you:
It normally takes up to 48 business hours for your application to be processed on to our system.

One from this list:
National Identity Card
Current state pension or benefit document from DWP
Blue Badge pass

Visitors / Temporary Residents
If you are visiting the area or are a temporary resident, we may be able to see you as a temporary resident. Please contact the surgery for further information.
If you feel that you require immediate medical attention, there is an Urgent Care centre based at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
What Happens Next
Once your application has been accepted by the practice, we will apply for your medical records from your previous surgery. Please note that this can take up to 6 weeks as per NHS guidelines.
Please ensure that you have enough medication from your previous surgery to last whilst we transition you over to our practice.
Should you need medication whilst your records are being forwarded to us, please make a routine appointment with a GP.
We are currently not accepting registrations for patients from other surgeries based in the Fountains Health building.
At this surgery we feel that it is important to look after the entire family. Therefore we DO NOT register children under 16 yrs old without parents / guardian being registered at the practice
