HOW TO JOIN SALISBURY MEDICAL PRACTICE
Live within boundary area?
In order to join our practice, you must live within our catchment area and be currently living or have plans to live in UK for 3 months. The catchment area covers all of Salisbury, and most of the surrounding villages. If you are unsure, check with our reception team when you come in to register. They will be happy to help.
You will need to complete a practice information sheet, as well as our registration forms. These are available in any of our branches or you can download them below. If you have a preferred branch that you would like to attend your appointments at, please indicate this on your sign up forms.
If you take regular medication, please make a 20 minute appointment once you have signed up. This will allow our doctors to stay on top of your health care needs.
We advise all of our new patients to make a routine health check appointment with our practice nurse within the first three months of joining our practice.
Once you have completed your registration you will need to bring with you:
- Photo ID (This should be either a driving license or passport)
- 2 proofs of address – These needs to be dated within the last 3 months, and it can’t be a mobile phone bill.
- If you don’t have any photo ID, then you will need to bring a full unabridged version of your birth certificate.
- For under 18’s you’ll need to bring a photo ID and 2 x proof of your parents address (dated within the last 3 months and not a mobile phone bill)
- For under 5’s you’ll need to bring their red book and a photo ID and 2 x proofs of the parents address (dated within the last 3 months and not a mobile phone bill)
Figures on bank statements can be blanked out, as long as the address is visible. These items are photocopied and once registration takes place they are destroyed as confidential waste. Your personal documents are not scanned, saved or retained in either your medical records or in the premises and do not form part of your patient information. They are used to confirm identity only.
If you are unsure, or have any questions, our reception teams will be able to aid you when you come in.
Please print, complete and hand in the documents below to begin the registration process. Alternatively, please pick up a registration pack from any of our branches.
We are able to see anyone who is only a temporary resident in our practice area, for a maximum of three months. You must be registered with a GP in the UK. To use this service, you will need to be temporarily registered with us by completing the relevant forms in one of our surgeries. Call us on 01722 333034 for more information.
