New patients are welcome at AW Surgeries. Our area is large, the boundary can be viewed below.
We ask that patients attend a 30 minute health screening appointment for registration. The task involves the administration of adding data to the relevant NHS computer systems, as well as capturing basic health data. You can book this by dropping into the surgery, or by telephoning the appointment line.
Families moving into the area and being registered together need to allocate 30 minutes for the initial person and 10 minutes for each addition adult / child.
The data required can be downloaded here in advance. Appointments are shortest where the patient arrives with their forms and we are merely checking and transferring data onto the system.
Prescriptions cannot be issued during a registration appointment. If you have repeat medication you need issuing, ensure you register prior to this running out. It will take 48 hours to have a prescription issued to you.
Following registration, your details from your previous surgery will be forwarded to us, part electronic and part paper. We will upload these to your record upon receipt. It can take several days or weeks for this process, dependant on the volume of records received.
