New Patient Registration
Registering at Broadmead Medical Centre is a very quick and easy process. As long as you are living within our catchment area and entitled to NHS treatment then we are happy to register you with the practice. Our receptionists will ask you a few questions during registration. The information that you supply will help us give you the best care that we can.
When you are ready to register come into the practice and ask for a registration form (the form can also be downloaded from the above "Registering Online" tab). Complete this form and hand it to the receptionist, together with your passport and proof of your address. If you are registering a child please bring along their red book or a copy of the vaccinations that they have received.
You may have a letter from the Home Office stating that you are entitled to NHS treatment. If you are in receipt of such a letter please bring this with you when you come into the practice to register.
If you feel that you would like support to stop smoking, help with weight management and/or healthy eating then please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see one of our nursing team. If you feel that you would like help to reduce your alcohol consumption then please make an appointment to see either a nurse or doctor.
We ask you for your ethnicity status and religion as this information helps the public health department develop local services around patient needs.
We hope that your time at Broadmead Medical Centre will be a happy one. However, if you do have any problems or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the practice staff who will be delighted to help you.
What to do with the registration form
If you want to join the practice please complete a registration form which can be picked up from reception. Please bring the completed form along to reception with your medical card if you have it. The information on the medical card will speed up the process of getting your records from your previous practice. Once you have been accepted as a patient your medical records will be transferred to us and a new medical card will be sent to your home address. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.
The practice covers all areas of BS1, BS2 and some of the surrounding area. If you are moving house or wish to join the practice please ask us whether your address is in our catchment area.
