Helping You Request Your Medication - Repeat Dispensing
Chiddenbrook Surgery welcomes new patients; provided you live inside the Practice area we are happy to register you with the practice. We are situated at the west of Crediton.
We cover Crediton and the outlying villages, to the north Morchard Bishop and Woolfardisworthy to the east Stockleigh Pomeroy, Newton St Cyres, almost as far as Cowley; in the south Tedburn St Mary and Hittisleigh and in the west Colebrooke, to the centre of Bow, Down St. Mary, Copplestone, and up to the Railway bridge an the A377 to the east of Lapford.
To register, first contact the surgery by email or phone to tell us your postcode and road or street name. From this information we can confirm that you live within the practice area.
Next complete the New Patient Questionnaire and Registration Form found on the Pre-registration page. Print this off and bring it to the surgery, along with a form of identification, ideally something with photo ID like your driving licence or passport. If you are registering a child/children under the age of six years, you will also be given an additional form to fill in regarding immunisations, and the receptionist will also take details to pass on to the health visitor.
Your information will then be added to our clinical system and a request will be made to your previous GP so that your patient notes can be forwarded on to us. If you are on medication, you will need to see a doctor before a prescription can be issued.
Please read our Confidentiality at the Surgeryinformation leaflet which explains our strict duty of confidentiality to all patients.
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.
Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
To speed up your registration we have attached an online version of the NHS Registration Form below. You may print off the registration form, fill it in and bring it with you on your first visit to the practice. This will save you from having to complete one at reception. Please also remember to bring the completed New Patient Health Questionnaire (below).
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a New Patient Health Questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file (link below), which you may fill out and send to us as an email attachment.
New Patient Health Questionnaire
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about yourself across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
