All patients registered at Wells Park Practice have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.

How to register
If you would like to join the practice you will need to register online by clicking the icon in the Pre-Registration page enter your details. You will then be contacted by the Practice to complete your registration. If you have not been contacted by the Practice within one week of you pre-registering online, please contact the Practice by email or telephone. To complete your registration, you will be required to show 2 forms of ID (a photographic ID such as driving licence or passport and a proof of address such as a utility bill), complete a new patient check with a nurse or Health Care Assistant, and sign an agreement with the Practice. An appointment for your new patient check will be made for you by one of the reception team and you will be given a New Patient Pack. We are unable to prescribe medication for you until you have had your new patient check and seen a doctor.
Children aged 16 and under: An adult member of the family can preregister children aged 16 and under, and provide the required information and sign the Practice agreement on their behalf.
As a patient, you have the right to express preference as to which GP you wish to see. However, if you require an appointment and your preferred GP is not available, you will be offered an appointment with another doctor. If you still wish to see your preferred GP you may have to wait longer.
