New Registrations Health Check

How to Register your New Baby

You need to register your new baby at the practice as soon as possible. Therefore please complete a GMS1 Registration Form and send it to your surgery. Please ensure you provide your baby’s NHS Number which will be detailed in their Red Book. Once we have received the form we will register your baby as a patient at this Practice.

The Practice will send you an appointment for a mother and baby post-natal check. This is a 50 minute appointment, 30 minutes for the baby check and 20 minutes for the post-natal. Your baby’s course of routine immunisations will start at 8 weeks and will be given at this appointment. Please remember to bring the red book. If you cannot make this appointment you must notify reception as soon as possible. Please be advised that if you do need to cancel, the next available appointment may be anything up to 4 weeks after that date.

The form can be downloaded from the Registration Forms section of this page, or ask reception for paper copies.
