New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill along with one form of photographic ID.
You are welcome to register at either Bawtry or Blyth and can use either surgery.
Please bring your NHS card if possible. If you don’t have it you will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Change of Personal Details
In order for us to give you the best service we would ask you to inform us if you change any of your personal details such as name, address or telephone number. Not only does this ensure our records are up to date but it also means we can contact you more quickly if we need to.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

Electronic Data Sharing Model
The Electronic Data Sharing Model is a way by which separate NHS organisations can share information about you and your medical conditions to improve the quality of care that you receive. There are two parts to this:
Sharing In - This means that your G.P. can see all information recorded electronically by other NHS services.
Sharing Out - This means that your G.P. will share information contained within your electronic medical record with other NHS services.
In accordance with Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group's policy on data sharing, this practice will always share information with other NHS services, and will always request information recorded by other NHS services to be shared with it.
You do have the right to request that the practice does not share your information with other NHS services, and does not look at information recorded by other services. Any such request must be made in writing to the practice manager.
