Please ask at reception our current criteria for accepting new patients onto the practice list.

We will ask you to fill a registration form and attend a new patient medical before we can accept you onto the list.

Regular clinics

We offer a number of different regular clinics providing a wide range of services.

We are always looking for ways to improve the service we offer to the patients registered at Denton Medical Practice.

Request a home visit

The doctor may telephone you to assess whether a visit is required, and may either give advice, arrange a surgery appointment or a home visit as is deemed appropriate.

A doctor or nurse can see many more patients in the surgery in the same time it takes to visit one patient at home, and the full facilities for examination are available only in the surgery.

Therefore, we offer home visits only to patients who the doctor or nurse feel are too ill to attend the surgery or who are registered as housebound.

We will not visit on the grounds of convenience, as this is unfair on other patients who would have to forego having an appointment in the surgery.

We expect patients to make arrangements for travel to and from the surgery. If you feel that you meet the criteria for a home visit, please ring before 10:30 am.

Please see the section Home Visit

Arrange a medical

If you wish to have a general health assessment, please ask the receptionist. 

If you require a medical for a HGV license, taxi license or anything similar, you will need to see a doctor.

Have a form filled

If you require a form to be filled, such as for the cancellation of a holiday on medical grounds, you can leave these at reception. 

There will usually be a charge for all private forms of this nature, for which your insurance company will ask that you pay. 

Please allow four weeks for completion.
