Register as a patient with Bay Medical Group
To receive the outstanding care that we give to our patients, please register with us. We can only register patients who live within our practice boundaries across Morecambe and Heysham with a LA3 or LA4 postcode.
All registration applications can be completed online, or at your nearest Bay Medical Group surgery.
For information about the various registration types, or to complete our online registration form, please follow the links below.
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.
You can register as an out-of-area patient and will be entitled to the full range of care, except home visits. You will need to meet certain requirements, and out-of-area registrations will only be accepted if appropriate for your health needs.
If you are staying in the area temporarily or visiting and are unwell, please contact either 111 or our surgery telephone number 01524 511999, as we may be able to treat you as a temporay patient.
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)
* 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 1 week by the Patient Records Team. 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.
