Non-urgent advice: New Patient Notice
Please be aware that you can download the registration form or complete it online but you must attend the surgery and bring with you the relevant documentation to support your registration.
The drop-down below shows you the types of evidence that are required and valid.
Registering with Danes Camp Medical Centre
Patients are able to register with the practice if they live within the practice boundary area (see front page). Registration forms can be obtained from Reception or by downloading this GSM1 form in the New Patient Registration Pack.
You will need to complete the form below for each person you wish to register with our Practice.
As part of the registration process please fill in our new patient questionnaire and make an appointment to see one of our practice nurses for a 15 minute health check. This gives us the chance to meet you, make an assessment of your current health prior to the arrival of your full medical records and to give appropriate treatment or advice as required. If you have problems completing the forms then please ask one of the staff for assistance.
Patients register with the practice not an individual practitioner but may see any of the doctors, although it is preferable to see the same doctor for an ongoing condition to aid continuity of care. However patients have a right to express a preference to see a particular practitioner. Please ask the receptionist to record your preference onto the computer system. We would advise that this might result in slightly longer wait for an appropriate appointment. Patients requiring urgent appointments will be expected to see the duty doctor who may not be their preferred practitioner.
New Patient Check
We encourage all new patients to have a 15 minute FREE registration medical check with the practice nurse. This enables us to find out about any existing problems for which you are receiving treatment and also to help you live a healthy lifestyle.
The nurse will ask about current and past illnesses and operations, any illnesses that run in the family, medication and allergies, screening tests e.g. cervical smears and immunisations. The Nurse will check your blood pressure, weight, and height and test a sample of your urine. You are also offered advice on healthy eating, exercise, sensible limits for alcohol and how to stop smoking.
The practice nurse will assess your risk of heart disease and can arrange a cholesterol check if appropriate.
