Registration Update 24/01/2022

After substantial discussion amongst the practice partners we have decided that for safety reasons we are no longer able to accept new patients onto the practice list. GPs currently have patient numbers far in excess of the national average, and our efforts to recruit new GPs have so far been unsuccessful. We continue to receive large numbers of registration requests on a daily basis, and have more than 500 more patients than at this time in 2021. We have applied to reduce the size of our practice boundary and await the outcome of this application. In the interim period we have therefore decided that we cannot take on new patients, without new GPs to manage these patients.

With effect from today we will only be registering patients if they are first degree relatives living in the same house as a patient already registered with the practice, or the newborn babies of families already registered with us.

If you have any questions about this policy please contact us on churchviewsurgery@nhs.net and we will respond as best we are able.

This decision will be under regular review, but unless our situation changes we expect it to apply for at least the next 3 months. We would like to thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

How to register

If you are within the Practice area (use our postcode checker below), please ask at Reception for Registration Application forms and information, alternatively you can print copies off below. You will also be required to provide 2 forms of identification. You can email your registration forms with scans of your ID to churchviewsurgery@nhs.net, instead of bringing them into the surgery. On acceptance you may need to be offered a New Patient Health Check with one of our Practice Nurses. Your registration normally takes 2 working days. Patients do have the right to express a preference of practitioner when completing their registration. 

We will look after your medical needs straight away, but please bear in mind that we may not receive your medical records for up to  six weeks.
