Register as a new patient

We welcome all new patients.

Practice Area

You can register as a new patient with the practice if you live in our inner practice area - within the blue boundary:

How to register as a new patient

Our main practice boundary:

This option will not work correctly. Unfortunately, your browser does not support inline frames.

Generally if you move outside the boundary you will need to register with a new practice.  We also have an 'outer boundary' which is slightly larger - meaning if you move only a very short distance you may not have to register with the new practice.

How to register as a new patient

Visit the surgery in person and complete an application form at reception. You will need 2 forms of identification for each person, one of which should be photo ID and one proof of address (eg utility bill).

New patients will also need to complete an initial health questionnaire

Online Pre-registration

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. If you are in our practice area, you will still need to attend the surgery with 2 forms of ID.

Pre-Registration Form

Overseas Visitors

If you are an overseas visitor to the UK there may be a charge to see the doctor or nurse. For further information, please contact reception.

Updating Your Details

Please let us know if you move address, change your phone number(s) or email. You can do this in person or if you are registered for online services you can do this via the patient portal.

Temporary residents

If you are visiting the area for work, family reasons, holiday or studies, you can register temporarily (from 16 days to 3 months) with Alwoodley Medical Centre. You’ll still remain registered with your permanent GP back at home.

To register as a temporary resident the place you are staying needs to be within our inner catchment area. After three months you will have to apply to register with that surgery as a permanent resident.

We will pass details of any treatment you have to your GP, who will add the information to your medical records.
