HOW TO JOIN BAY MEDICAL GROUP
Registration is with the practice and NOT an individual doctor, although you will be allocated a named GP. Patients wishing to register with the practice will be asked to complete a Registration Form (GMS1) and a New Patient Questionnaire. The practice does not operate a personal list system, however you have the right to express a preference of practitioner, please let the Patient Advisor know your preference when booking routine appointments.
Do you live within our Registering Boundary Area?
Please note: from the 30th October 2018, Bay Medical Groups boundary only covers LA3 & LA4 postcodes.
How to register
You can request a New Patient Registration Pack from reception at any of our sites, or alternatively, you may print off the forms below, and return to us.
GMS1 - Registration Form (printable)
New Patient Questionnaire (only required for those aged 16 or over)
Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are asking patients not to attend the surgery unless absolutely necessary. If you need to register with us then please complete the below GMS1 Online Form. If you are over 16 and have access to a printer, please also print the New Patient Questionnaire and post this to surgery as soon as possible following completing the GMS1 Online Form.
* Please note we must receive both the registration form and the questionnaire for us to register you with the Practice.
Once we have received the fully completed and signed registration form and questionnaires, your registration will be processed within 2 weeks by a registration clerk. You will receive a letter from Bay Medical Group confirming your registration and informing you of your named GP. From this point you will be registered with Bay Medical Group and can then make any appointments you require. Please ensure you have enough medication to cover you during this process. Emergency medical advice/appointments can be obtained by calling 111.
Disabled Patient Facilities
Disabled patient facilities are available in all branches.
