Change of Name or Address

Documentary Proof

We will require documented proof for Change of Name, this will need to be Marriage Certificate or Deed Poll, please bring this with you on your next visit to the practice.

If you Change your Address please let reception know. If you have moved to our outer boundary (see black line on map), you may remain registered with us.

If you have moved outside of our boundary completely you may remain registered as an Out of Area patient.  Please let us know if you would like to be considered for this.


New arrangements introduced from January 2015 give people greater choice when choosing a GP practice.  Patients may approach any GP practice, even if they live outside the practice area.

The new arrangements mean GP practices now have the option to register patients who live outside the practice area but without any obligation to provide home visits.

We may decide that it is not in your best interest or practical for you to be registered in this way, in which case we would advise you to register with a more local practice.

If accepted but your health needs change we may review your registration to see if it would be more appropriate for you to be registered with a GP practice closer to you home.

This new arrangement only applies to GP practices and patients who live in England.  For further information visit the NHS Choices website (
