please complete a GMS1 Registration Form and send it to your surgery. Please ensure you provide your baby’s NHS Number which will be detailed in their Red Book. Once we have received the form, we will register your baby as a patient at this Practice.
The Practice will send you an appointment for a mother and baby post-natal check. This is a 30-minute appointment, 20 minutes for the baby check and 10 minutes for the post-natal.
Your baby’s course of routine immunisations will start from 8 weeks, these appointments will be booked by Child Health and subsequently confirmed by the practice.
Please remember to bring the red book to all appointments. If you cannot make this appointment, you must notify the surgery as soon as possible.

There are around 2.6m veterans in the UK. A military veteran is anyone who has served in the armed forces for at least 1 day.
When servicemen and women leave the armed forces, their healthcare is the responsibility of the NHS. It is very important that veterans both register with an NHS GP and tell them that they have served.
- Telling the GP practice about your veteran status will trigger the transfer of your full medical documentation from the Ministry of Defence to your GP and enable you to benefit from veteran-specific services like prosthetics and mental health.
- All veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS care (including hospital, primary or community care) for conditions associated with their time within the armed forces. But this is always subject to clinical need and doesn't entitle you to jump the queue ahead of someone with a higher clinical need.
If the NHS service you're dealing with is unaware of priority treatment, you're actively encouraged to tell them about it and ensure you have told them you have served.
We would also like to know if a member of your family is a military veteran, please inform the reception staff. If you have a friend or know a veteran, please ask them to inform their GP practice. Staff will be happy to answer any questions.
Military Veterans’ Service for Greater Manchester and Lancashire
- The Military Veterans’ Service for Greater Manchester and Lancashire provide mental health support to ex-service personnel for conditions including depression, alcohol and substance misuse, anger problems and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Some people who have served in the armed forces say that they can experience emotional difficulties and find it hard to ask for help. This may be because of difficult experiences or simply adjusting to civilian life.
