We operate a non-discriminatory policy and are currently able to register new patients at the surgery.
Anyone residing within our practice boundary is welcome to register as a patient with us.
If you would like to register please come to reception and ask for a new patient pack. The pack contains two forms which need to be completed, if you need help completing the forms please ask for help. Once you have completed the forms, return them to reception.
You will also need to bring proof of identity and proof of current address. Photo ID is required such as passport or both parts of the new card driving licences. Birth certificates will be acceptable for baby registrations. For proof of address we will accept a current paper utility bill or bank/building society statement - not printed off internet; local authority rent card; P45; benefit book/signing on card; correspondence from Home Office etc. Please also bring your NHS number if you have one (this can be obtained from your current/previous GP).
Once you have registered with the surgery we will then request your medical records from your previous GP.
Please remember to notify the practice if you change name, address or telephone number, putting any amendments in writing by fax, post, or you can come to the surgery to complete a form.
Although you will be registered with the practice, and not individual doctors, we will aim to offer you a choice of doctors when booking appointments.
Please note that we cannot issue repeat prescriptions for new patients until they have had an appointment with a doctor.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. If you are in our practice area, you will still need to attend the surgery with 2 forms of ID.
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.
Our catchment area for new patients into Alwoodley Medical Centre (including the Adel branch) includes many BUT NOT ALL postcodes within the following postal sectors (first part of your postcode):
LS16 5, LS16 8, LS16 9
LS17 1, LS17 5, LS17 6, LS17 7, LS17 8, LS17 9
Please check with Reception to see if your postcode is within the catchment area. If your postcode does not fall within the sectors listed above, we will unfortunately not be able to accept you as a new patient.
There is a slightly wider catchment for existing patients moving home. Please ask at Reception if you are moving home to see whether you will be able to remain a patient after your move.

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.
