New Patient Health Questionnaire
We give all our new patients the opportunity to meet their new doctor or nurse for a New Patient Check-up. This gives your doctor/nurse the opportunity to meet you and chat about any past illnesses or problems, which affect your well-being. The doctor/nurse will offer to measure your height, check your weight and take your blood pressure. The doctor/nurse will also require a specimen of urine to test and any previous repeat prescription slips, please bring these with you.
To attend for this check-up, which takes approximately twenty minutes, the receptionist will arrange a convenient appointment for you.
You can also arrange to Book On-Line for future appointments and to issue your repeat prescriptions. To obtain your password from reception requires the presentation of one form of photo identification and one proof of address document.
We have a Patient Forum at the surgery. This is an on-line volunteer “virtual” group to help provide and improve the services offered by the Apples. If you would like to join this group then please ask for details at reception.
You can either download the questionnaire here - Patient Health Questionnaire to complete it on a computer or by hand, or alternatively you can complete the online version below. We require that the form be signed and dated, whichever method you have chosen. Once you have completed the questionnaire please bring it to reception along with your completed GMS registration form and proof of identity and address.
