We are currently accepting new patients who live within our catchment area which is defined on the attached map. In order to fully register with the Practice all patients must:
Easy Read communication support form (to help us understand your preferences)
To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
You will be required to attend a registration and health screening appointment with the practice nurse, speak to our receptionist a couple of days after you have completed the questionnaire and she will make an appointment for you.
Please note that you will not be able to book a routine appointment until you have had a health screening appointment with a nurse. Health Screening includes measurement of height, weight and blood pressure, a discussion about diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and exercise. Women will be offered a breast examination and a cervical smear.
Any patient between the age of 16 and 74 who has not attended the surgery in the past three years may request a health check appointment. Patients aged 75 and over should be seen at least once a year by one of the clinical staff. Please contact the surgery to book an over 75 health check if you have not been seen in the past 12 months.
It is important if you are registering a child that you provide us with details of their previous immunisations, preferably the red book.
Each family member must fill out a separate form and please bring one official document and one proof of address on your first visit. Acceptable documentation is listed below.
Your NHS medical card (if missing please contact your previous doctor for your NHS number)
A recent utility bill (within the past 3 months) showing your name and address
A recent bank/building society statement (within the past 3 months) showing your name and address

The NHS in England is changing the way health information is stored and managed. This is called the NHS Summary Care Record (SCR).
All of our patients here at Fortune Green Road Practice, including children, now have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care. All the currently registerd patients to the practice have been given Dr.Sumara Nadeem as the named GP. Named Accountable GP for all Patients. Please note that this does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now, and you are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is.
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.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
