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 identification.
You are welcome to register at either our Bawtry or Blyth surgeries and can use either surgery.
Please bring your N.H.S. Card if possible. If you do not 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 G.P. Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at G.P. 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 N.H.S. 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 N.H.S. services.
Sharing Out - This means that your G.P. will share information contained within your electronic medical record with other N.H.S. services.
In accordance with Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group's policy on data sharing, this practice will always share information with other N.H.S. services, and will always request information recorded by other N.H.S. services to be shared with it.
You do have the right to request that the practice does not share your information with other N.H.S. services, and does not look at information recorded by other services. Any such request must be made in writing to the practice manager.
