New Patient Registration
Anyone living in Wainscott, Cliffe Woods, Cliffe, Higham, Upnor and surrounding areas (please see the above exceptions) are welcome to register with us for medical services. All surgeries have disabled access.
We will register you with a named doctor but you can see any doctor at any of the sites.
The receptionist will give you a form to complete to give us some basic information about you. When submitting your application it is really important to ensure you have completed all of the boxes on the application form including your NHS number which you can obtain from your previous surgery or it usually printed on your hospital correspondence. Incomplete forms will not be accepted until all the necessary information is provided.
Please allow 2-3 working days from when returning the completed forms to allow the registration process to be completed before booking an appointment. All registration forms are processed at Cliffe Woods, so where possible, please return the completed forms to there with your proof of address etc. You are still able to return your completed forms to Wainscott but please be aware it may take longer to complete the registration process.

Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015, all patients registered at any GP practice are required to be allocated a named accountable GP.
What does ‘accountable’ mean?
The named accountable GP is responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each patient as required. However, this does not mean that they will be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient. If you would like to know your accountable GP, please ask at reception.
