New Patient Registration

If you would like to register with the Furnace House Surgery, please attend the surgery to collect the registration form together with the new patient health questionnaire.  It is very important that you complete these forms fully.

You may be required to provide proof of address.

If you are unable to collect the forms, contact the Surgery and we will post them to you.

Please note: patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP.  However, you can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor and we will do our best to respect your choice.  Please be aware, however, that not all doctors in the practice provide all services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.

Inform the receptionist if you have ever been a member of the Armed Forces when registering.  

Please click the appropriate links to download and print the relevant forms at home.

If you would also like to give your consent for appointment reminders or health promotions, please collect the text messaging consent form and return it to the surgery.

Please make every effort to ensure that your name, address and telephone/mobile numbers are kept correct.

As a Practice we are committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment for our patients.  If you would like a chaperone during your consultation, please ask the doctor.  A Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant will usually act as your chaperone, but on rare occasions a Receptionist may be asked to chaperone.

Temporary Residents.

You are able to see a doctor anywhere in the UK, if you are away from home and in need of medical help.  You can do this by simply asking to see the nearest doctor, as a temporary resident.  We will be happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you, if they need a doctor.  If you are attending the Surgery for repeat medication that you have run out of or forgotten to bring with you, please note that selected Community Pharmacies in the area can provide you with an Emergency Supply.  

Community Pharmacies.

Your community pharmacies can be located at:

  •  Morrisons (SA31 2NF),
  • Walter Lloyd (12 Lammas Street, SA31 3AD) or
  • Rowland’s Pharmacy (1A Richmond Terrace SA31 1HE)N

Non-English Speakers

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. Open the leaflet here and choose an appropriate language for you.
