Accountable / Named GP for All Patients
All patients registered at practice have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.

To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
How to register
Patients wishing to register with this practice will be asked to bring an NHS card (if possible) and details of their previous practice. You will then be asked to complete a registration form and you will need to bring proof of address (ideally 2 utility bills) and proof of identity (passport or driving licence) with you. An appointment will then be made for you to see a nurse or health care assistant for a health check. Once you have had the health check you will be fully registered and able to consult with a doctor. If you would like to register online you can download the relevant form here.
When you register at Belmont Hill Surgery you are registering as a patient of the practice rather than with a specific doctor. If you wish, you may express a preference to see a specific doctor and we will try to accommodate your wish. This may not always be possible but we can assure you that, with excellent liaison between our clinical staff and comprehensive computerised medical records, any of the doctors will be able to help you when you visit the surgery.
Change of Personal details
Once registered at the surgery, should you change your name, address or telephone number at any time, please let us know by contacting reception or writing to the surgery. It is also helpful to let us know a change of mobile number as soon as possible. If you move outside of the practice area you will be asked to find another doctor nearer to where you are living.
