To register at the Orchid House Surgery, please bring your medical card, some form of photographic identification (eg passport or photo driving licence) and proof of address (eg recent utility bill) to the surgery where the receptionist will register you with the practice. If you do not have a medical card, please ask for an application form. Temporary residents, who are also required to provide photo ID, are registered on a special form at reception. Patients who wish to register online will first need to bring proof of ID and address into the surgery before registration is accepted.
We do not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability, medical condition or on the perceived cost or extent of any work a patient is likely to generate by virtue of their clinical condition.
Orchid House Surgery does not operate a system of 'personal list'. Patients are registered with the practice and not an individual GP. Therefore, after registration, you may see any of our doctors. You are still able to book with your preferred GP, but please be aware that this type of appointment can take longer because of the way we work our system.
We offer a daily triage telephone consultation with the duty doctor. The receptionist will take your telephone contact details and the doctor will ring you back to discuss the nature of your problem. If he/she needs to see you in surgery then you will be given a time to come in and see them that day.
