In order to join our practice, you must live within our catchment area. This 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. If you have a preferred branch that you would like to attend your appointments at, please indicate on your sign up forms.

If you are on 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 our new patients to make a routine health check with our practice nurse within the first three months of joining our practice.
