Register with us as a New Patient

If you live in the practice catchment area (please click on link below to see a map of The Colne Practice catchment area)and wish to register at the practice please pick up the registration forms from the surgery, or alternatively you can register online.

Wherever possible members of the same household will normally be allocated to the same doctor. We try to maintain balanced lists by age and gender amongst the doctors.

Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor and we will ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy below and why we ask for this). Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

Please note that if you were previously registered with a Doctor outside the UK then the Practice will not have access to your medical notes.  All patients who register from abroad should contact their previous Doctor to obtain copies of their notes.
