We are currently taking new patients on in our Practice Area - all of Barrow, Walney Island, Barrow Island, Assam, Rampside, Roa Island & villages to Aldingham Village.
Please call into the Surgery for a registration pack.
Please note that we will ask you to sign a letter confirming that you are aware that if you are currently taking certain medications such as Diazepam or Pregabalin then we may not continue to prescribe this. Also patients with long term conditions which require a sick note will need to be reviewed by a Doctor.
When you are completing your form please make sure you record any relevant medical history an current medication as we may not receive your medical records from your previous Doctor for some time and thus enables us to get to know whether you have any medical conditions which may need attention and also to make sure you receive any medication you require.
Once you complete your registration form we will ask you to use our Biometric Machine to record your blood pressure, height and weight. Once we have these measurements we will register you.
