We accept new registrations every Wednesday from 9.30am. Once capacity is reached, we close off registrations until the following week.

To register with the surgery:

  • To fill out an online registration form please go to the NHS website.
  • if you are unable to do an on-line registration form and don’t have access to the internet, please visit our reception between 9:30-10:30 on Wednesday’s and collect a paper registration form.

When you register, it’s helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

PLEASE NOTE – It can take up to 2 weeks for your registration to be processed.  You will still be registered at your previous practice until you receive a text message from us to confirm your registration has been processed.

Named GP

All patients at Fort House Surgery have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating their care.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice.

Whilst we will try and ensure you see the same GP, there will be occasions when it won’t be possible (for example you need to speak or see a GP on the day and your GP isn’t working; or they are on holiday when you want an appointment)
