How to register as a new patient
If you live within our practice area (download our Area Map) and would like to register as a new patient at our Practice, please complete the following steps:
1. Download and complete the NHS New Patient Form (PDF) and our New Patient Questionnaire (PDF), and a Summary Care Record Sharing form (PDF).
2. You can post them to us or bring them into reception at any of our surgeries at Kibworth, Market Harborough or Fleckney. To find our addresses go to our contact page.
3. We will confirm receipt of your registration and you will be registered as a patient.
New arrangements introduced from January 2015 mean GP practices now have the option to register patients who live outside the practice area but without any obligation to provide home visits. This gives people greater choice when choosing a GP practice. Patients may approach any GP practice, even if they live outside the practice catchment area, to see if they will be accepted on to the patient list. Please download our information leaflet and if you have any questions please phone us on 0116 279 2422.
When you register as a patient with the Practice you will be registering with a named doctor, known as your accountable GP. Although we cannot guarantee you will always be able to see your named doctor, you can book appointments with any doctor. If you have any questions or would like to speak to one of our team, please contact us.
New Patient Screening
All new patients are asked to complete a health questionnaire, which is reviewed by a member of our clinical staff. Following this you may be invited to come for a New Patient Registration Medical appointment with one of our nurses or health care assistants. This involves asking you a few questions about your medical history and noting any medication you are taking. She will check your blood pressure, do a urine test, and sometimes a blood test.
Depending on the assessment, you may be offered further tests. You can take advantage of this time to have a discussion about your lifestyle and any health problems. If she feels it is necessary, the nurse may ask you to come and see one of the practice doctors for a further assessment.
