JOIN THE PRACTICE
The Practice’s list will reopen in August 2019 when we will be happy to accept new patients living in Widnes. If you move out of the area, you will be requested to change Doctors. Registering as a patient is quick and easy with only two brief forms to fill in.
Please contact a member of the Reception Team on 0151 423 2990 for a new patient registration form and pack.
You may be offered a ‘New Patient Medical’ this is an important method of getting to know about you as a new patient. We will offer you the opportunity to discuss any health worries or issues with a Health Care Assistant. If you are on medication you will need to be reviewed by a Doctor. These ‘mini-medicals’ involve answering basic questions and some routine measurements such as height, weight and blood pressure.
You will be asked about things that may affect your future health, for example, whether or not you smoke cigarettes/cigars/pipe and drink alcohol. You may be given advice about measures you can take to improve your health and given information about some of the services on offer from the Surgery.
