Registering with Bowling Highfield Medical Practice is easy - you can simply fill in this form https://gp-registration.nhs.uk/B83041 and register with us online.
Alternatively, you can come up to the surgery and ask for a new patient registration form. Our reception team will then provide you with the necceseary forms to fill in. We also ask if you could possibly provide some form of identification when you hand the forms back in although this is not a requirement if you have none available.
Use this service to get your NHS number.
Your NHS number is a 10 digit number, like 485 777 3456.
You do not need to know your NHS number to use NHS services, but it can be useful to have it.
Once you are registered, you are assigned to a one of our senior partners as your allocated GP. We have a rota that we follow where if you register on a specific day, you are assinged to a specific GP's list of registered patients. This has no influence on your care and who you can see, you can still see anybody available when you are in need of an appointment.
However, we shall express that if you do have a prefrence about which GP you are registered under, you can inform us the next time you are in contact with the surgery and we will apply the changes requested.
