New Patient Registration
Anyone living within our practice area is welcome to register with us. Currently our only exception is to anyone who has previously shown violent or intimidating behaviour to any member of our staff.
Registration forms are available at reception or pre-registration forms can be found on the above “Registering Online” tab but a signature and proof of identification will be required before full registration can take place.
All patients are entitled to know who their "accountable GP" is please ask at reception to find out yours.
East Street Surgery practice area is approximately an 8-mile radius of South Molton. A detailed map is kept in the reception office and also displayed in the waiting room. We will happily register anyone living within the designated area and they can register with a usual GP of their choice.
However we do not register new patients outside this area except in the case of incoming family members of families already registered outside the practice area (i.e. new births and elderly relatives).
For historical reasons we have some patients who live outside the practice area, but we do not take new families outside the designated area, unless the above exceptions apply.
Existing patients moving outside the practice area will be identified by the change of address procedure and asked by the reception team or practice manager to re-register elsewhere. If there are any queries/doubts please discuss with the practice manager.
If you have any specific queries about our services or care not addressed here please contact us.
Change of Address
Please let us know as soon as possible about any change of address or phone number. If you are ex-directory it is very helpful to us if we can have your telephone number. We will keep it confidential along with all the other information we hold.
