To be eligible to register with the practice, you must be resident within the Practice boundaries agreed with AMU Health Board and be entitled to NHS care .

The practice area is confined by:

We have agreed revised practice boundaries with ABMU University Health Board Trust to help us manage the increasing demands on our services.  Existing patients living outside our practice area will not be required to register with a another practice, however, patients currently registered with the practice moving outside our revised practice area will be required to register elsewhere. We apologise for any inconvenience the change to practice boundaries may cause..

Full registration

To register with the practice all you need to do is complete a registration form obtainable from the practice reception.

Please note: you will be able to see a member of the practice team once the registration form has been handed to the practice, however, because it may take several weeks before your medical records are forwarded to us from your old doctor, newly registered patients are required to make an appointment with the practice nurse for a  health check to provide us with essential health information. The registration process is not complete until the application has been processed by ABMU Health Board Trust.

Temporary Resident

If you are only in the area for a short time, you may register with the practice as a temporary patient for up to 3 months, if you are staying a longer period of time you will be required to register with the practice in the usual way.

Immediate and Necessary Treatment

If you are in the area require emergency care from a general practitioner, you are eligible to be treated by the practice if your own GP is not located within the practice boundaries and it is not safe to wait until you are able to see your own GP..
