Register as a New patient

You can either pick up a New Patient Registration booklet from Reception or download it. Simply complete and return.

At the point of registration, we will often set you up with online access, so to enable this we will need two forms of personal identification, one from each list below:

Personal ID: Current passport, photocard driving licence or birth certificate.

AND

Address ID: Utility bill, bank statement or council tax, etc. (with your name, address and dated within the last 6 months)

We welcome patients to the Practice regardless of age, sex, or nationality. Nor do we exclude patients on the grounds of medical condition, sexual orientation, religious or philosophical beliefs.

Named GP

Every patient registered at Appletree is allocated a ‘named’ GP. If you have a specific preference as to which GP you wish to be assigned, the Practice will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate your request. Please speak to a receptionist to request this. You can still make an appointment with any GP or nurse but the role of the named accountable GP is to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services provided by the Practice and to use their clinical judgement to ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required. If you do not know who your ‘named’ GP is, please feel free to ask at reception.

Accredited Arm Forces veteran Friendly Practice

Appletree Medical Practice is now an accredited Armed Forces veteran friendly practice. If you are ex-forces please let us know so that we can ensure you are getting the best possible care.

Practice Boundary

 We are not able to accept registration from patients living outside the Practice Boundary. Please note that although the post code for Langley Country Park off Radbourne Lane shows as being within our Practice area it actually sits outside and we are unable to accept new patient registrations from that location.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Following Government guidance, we are now able to plan to invite patients for their flu jabs and covid boosters.  These vaccinations (one in each arm) will be given at the same appointment.  The covid booster cannot be given until 6 months after you received your second covid vaccine.   You are likely to be offered a full dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (or, less likely, a half dose of the Moderna vaccine).  This follows scientific evidence showing that both of these vaccines provide a strong booster response, regardless of which vaccine you initially had.

 

We are currently working very hard to put these clinics in place so please bear with us.  We will be contacting eligible patients either by text, phone or letter inviting you to book an appointment a the Babington Vaccination Hub.

 

Eligible Under 18’s are the exception and will be offered the Nasal Flu vaccination at the Duffield Surgery.  Again, invitations will be sent by text, phone or letter.

 

We are still awaiting guidance regarding administering the covid vaccination to ‘At Risk’ children.
