How to register

Anyone living in our practice area can join the practice regardless of age, personal circumstances or medical conditions. The practice is fully committed to equal opportunities. The practice mainly serves N1, N5 postal districts, as well as parts of N7 and N16. Our practice has not signed up to the Out of Area Registration Scheme. We do not take registrations from outside our practice boundary and addresses belonging to Hackney Council. If you have moved outside the practice boundary, it may be necessary for us to advise you to register with a local GP. Patients who live outside the practice boundary will not be able to request home visits.

Patients wishing to register will need to fill in a GMS1 - NHS GP patient registration form and the Registration Health Questionnaire. You can collect this from Reception. Patients wishing to register will also need to bring with them a proof of identity (this can be a passport or a driving licence) and a proof of address (bank statement, utility bill, etc). We can register you without these documents but your registration maybe rejected by the Health Authority or could be delayed until the Health Authority traces your records. They are also a mandatory requiremnt if you would like online access to your records. Having your NHS number at the time of your registration is very helpful. If you are registering a child, please bring a birth certificate and the Red Book.

Please note that incomplete forms or documentation leads to delays as we have to verify your details. If we are not able to get in touch with you to verify your details, we will cancel your registration and you will have to fill in the forms again. Thank you for your understanding.

The #1 reason for rejected registrations is lack of NHS number. Many people share a name or date of birth in the UK. If you have been registered with a GP before or visited a hospital or online GP provider, it is likely you will have an NHS number assigned.

You will also need to decide on whether or not you wish to have a summary care record (SCR). You can find out more about the SCR for patients here.  You can change your preferences on your NHS App.
