We only accept patients who live in Swinton and the surrounding area. Once you have been accepted by the Practice you need to complete details on your medical card (if you have one) or ask for a registration form at reception.
Patients are advised that they register with the Practice and not with an individual Doctor. However, patients have the right to express a preference to receive services from a particular Doctor and such preferences will be recorded in the patients record.
When a patient registers with the practice they are given a brief questionnaire to complete and are advised to make an appointment with a Practice Nurse for a short medical. This gives us a brief history and helps us until their records are received from their previous GP.
We are happy to see friends or relatives who are staying with our patients if they become ill. A temporary resident form needs to be completed with details of the home address and the home doctor.
