HOW TO JOIN SALISBURY MEDICAL PRACTICE
Live within boundary area?
- Please note that we are still accepting new patient registrations.
- Due to COVID-19, we are unable to give out registration packs at any of our surgeries.
- Please download the three documents below, complete and send them to us with copies of two proofs of address and one photographic ID (please read the information below to find out which ID is accepted).
- These can be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or posted through our letter box outside of Fisherton House.
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. They will be happy to help.
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.
To complete your registration you will need to provide:
- 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 the full unabridged version of your birth certificate.
- For under 18’s you’ll need to provide 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 provide 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. Once registration takes place, all documents 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 team will be able to aid you via telephone.
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. Call us on 01722 333034 for more information.
