New Patient Registration

New patients registering at the surgery will only be eligible if they live within a 3 mile travelling distance, excluding postcodes CH1 5**, CH1 6**, CH4 7** and CH4 8**. The three mile travelling limit will be determined by using Google Maps. 

Existing patients that move house more than a quarter of a mile beyond our 3 mile limit (or into one of these specific postcodes) will be asked to re-register at a new surgery. 

If the address is in Wales, we are not able to accept the registration due to different healthcare, IT systems, and administrative arrangements in operation there.
