About Registering

Who can register?

To register at the surgery you will need to live in the practice area. This includes:

• Twyford

• Ruscombe

• Charvil

• Hurst

• Waltham St. Lawrence

• Winnersh (but not usually south of the M4 and not beyond the A329. Winnersh has 2 separate surgeries covering the area).

Knowl Hill and Wargrave patients can be accepted but are covered by Wargrave Surgery.

We also accept patients living in Sonning as the village has no surgery, however Loddon Vale Practice is nearer.

How to Register

You will need to fill in a registration form for each patient registering with the practice.

These can be obtained from reception or you can fill out a form online if you go to the ‘Registration’ tab and click on the ‘Registration form’ link.

If you are in any doubt please speak to a receptionist. It is better to register the whole household. No discrimination will be made in regard to race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance or on grounds of disability or medical condition.

We ask to see proof of ID for each patient and proof of address for each household registering with the surgery.

Acceptable proof of ID includes a passport, birth certificate or current UK driving licence, and acceptable proof of address includes a rental or housing agreement, a recent utility bill showing your current address (council tax statement, gas, electric, telephone or water), a recent bank statement or a current UK driving licence.

Patients will only need to bring in one of each type of document. An up-to-date UK drivers licence showing your current address can be taken as proof of both ID and address.

New Patients

All new patients over the age of 16 years are requested to fill in a new patient health questionnaire, as it can take about 6 weeks for your medical records to reach us. This provides us with valuable information on your health and needs.

Temporary Patients

Visitors staying for less than 3 months can register as temporary residents if they need medical care whilst they are in the area.

Registration Form

When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us.

Online medical questionnaire for new patients

Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.

Alternatively, you may print off a questionnaire, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
