JOINING THE WESTWOOD & PICKFORD SURGERY
Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
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
If you wish to register as a patient at either of our surgeries then we need certain information from you and each member of your family so as to be able to trace your previous medical records.
Please come to the surgery with:
- A completed registration form (click this link for the 'Registration Form' )
- Your NHS medical card from your previous GP
- Proof of ID
- Proof of your current address
- Decide what kind of Summary Consent Record you want and complete the consent form.
If you do not have an NHS medical card (for instance, if you have just arrived in the UK), or if you cannot find it, you are still able to register with us but it may take longer to locate your previous medical records and you will be required to fill in more paperwork.
If you are staying in the area for less than 3 months, e.g. with friends or family, then you can be seen by a Doctor if the need arises. This is usually free of charge apart from certain cases where the individual lives abroad (this applies mainly outside the EEC); in these circumstances a fee may be charged.
