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.
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.

Due to a need to re-align forms used for registration, our pre-registration form will be temporarily disabled, until we can ensure that it will provide the necessary information for registering with the Broadmead Medical Centre. In the mean time, the below Medical Questionnaire and the printable registration form will still be made available to you.
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. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
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 registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
