We accept new patients who live in our practice area (the WC1 area). You can register by completing a registration form which can be obtained from the practice or downloaded from our website. When you register, we will offer you an appointment for a new patient health check. This helps you make sure that our records are accurate and that all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/cholesterol/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.
If you want to join the practice please complete a registration form and bring the completed form along to reception with your medical card if you have it and proof of your address. Once your registration is completed, 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 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.
To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
Your Named GP
all patients at Bloomsbury Surgery are free to see any GP of their choice but each patient has a named accountable GP on their clinical record. If you wish to find out who your named GP is then please ask at reception. This named GP has overall responsibility for you but please feel free to request an appointment with any doctor or our Nurse Practitioner who may be available.
