Tips to get the most of your appointment
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
If you would like to join our practice, please come to the main reception at Milton Abbas. We will ask you to complete registration forms for all members of your family who wish to register with us.
All new patients will be invited to have a new patient check with one of our nurses. This is a basic health check for you and an opportunity for us to obtain important background medical history and arrange any repeat prescriptions, if applicable.
If you are temporarily staying in our practice area and need the services of the doctor or nurse, please telephone the surgery to make an appointment. When you arrive at the reception desk for your appointment, please ask for a Temporary Resident form which must be completed before you see the doctor or nurse. Temporary registration lasts for 3 months.
Please contact reception for further information.
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. We will then ring you arrange a new patient check. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.

We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.
