How to Register as a Patient

  1. In person at the surgery; request a Registration pack from reception for completion.
  2. You can print the registration forms online via the links below  and then bring them in to register.

If you need to see a doctor or nurse but haven’t yet registered, you can still book an appointment; you just need to come 10 minutes early and register when you get here.

Practice Area

You will not be able to register with the practices if you live outside the practice boundary.

Download the forms

When you visit the health centre to register you will need to hand in these forms at reception and provide some form of identification.

GP Registration Campaign

NHSE have launched a campaign to support all people to register with a GP practice. Many people who experience health inequalities can face barriers when trying to register.

Our practice will not turn people away from registering because they don’t have proof of ID, address or immigration status. People can also register if they do not know or do not have an NHS number.

Being registered with a GP has many benefits such as access to routine vaccinations, GP appointment, nurse care, long-term conditions care, physio appointments, mental health appointments, phlebotomy services and much, much more.

Preferred Practitioner

You are entitled to request to see your preferred GP for routine appointments. However, this will not be possible for urgent or emergency appointments that must be seen that day. You may also find that you have to wait longer than usual if you only want to see your preferred GP.

All patients at Sherwood Medical Partnership are assigned a Partner GP as their named GP.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice. You can talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

If you consent to being contacted via text, you will be notified of your named GP by text once registered with us.

Online Services

Online access

Online access allows you to see your medical record, request prescriptions, and see your test results, with more services being developed.  

You can get online access via the NHS app/webpage.

You can register with the NHS app with either Photo Id, or requesting a Linkage Key (or Passphrase), ODS Code (organisation code or practice ID) and Account ID from the surgery. 

Users already registered and using SystmOnline should be able to see their full medical records from the 1st November 2023 automatically however you can still register with the NHS app as well.

NHS app users may need to speak to the surgery to request to be able to see their medical records once registered. Only full records access from 01.11.2023 onwards will be visible.

For further information regarding access to records please contact the surgery.

Accessing someone else’s information 

As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. 

To request proxy access please collect a form from reception. 

The person whose record you wish to have access to may have to give their consent for your to do so and sign a form to this effect.

Linked profiles in your NHS account 

Once proxy access is set up, you can access the other person’s profile in your NHS account, using the NHS App or website. The NHS website (included link to correct page) has information about using linked profiles to access services for someone else.
