Patient Registration

We are pleased to accept new patients from Wincanton and the surrounding area.

You are now able to complete the registration form via the NHS website:

Register With Wincanton Health Centre

Alternatively you can download our registration forms here:

Adult Patient Registration Form

Child and Young Person Registration Form

Once completed please return to the surgery via email or post, the details for which can be found here.

You will be registered with the doctor who has the fewest patients during the month in which you apply to join the practice. This is for administrative purposes only and you may ask to see whichever doctor or healthcare professional you wish. When phoning for an appointment or submitting an Ask My GP request, please specify if you have a preference as to which doctor or clinician you see. We will endeavor to meet your request although you may have to wait a little longer for an appointment with a specified doctor.

When you register you will also be asked to answer some medical questions, this is because it can take a considerable amount of time for us to receive your medical records.

If you wish to submit your registration details online, please complete the applicable form below. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct (a parent or legal guardian can sign for a child under 16 years of age). You will also need to provide your identification documents at your next visit to the surgery.

If you also have your Medical Card from your previous doctor, please bring this with you.

Don't forget to look out for our welcome text once you are registered onto our system!

Temporary Residents

If you need treatment, you will need to register with us as a temporary patient if you plan to live near the surgery for up to 3 months (after 3 months you will need to register as a permanent patient).

You will need to complete a GMS3 form to register as a temporary patient.

For further advice, please see the NHS website.

Remember, for general medical advice or advice out of surgery hours please contact NHS 111.

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life-threatening situation.

When to call 111:

  • you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
  • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
  • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
