It is very important that you notify us immediately of any change of name, address or telephone number. There are many reasons why we may need to contact you. Please ensure we have a contact telephone number for you. If you move out of the area, you will need to register with a new doctor straightaway and not leave it until you become ill. Whilst the practice will endeavour to comply with the patient’s right to express a preference of practitioner, this might not always be possible. If this were to be the case, an explanation would be offered.
