New Patient Registration
Our practice has a defined boundary which has been agreed with the Tameside and Glossop Primary Care Trust. The catchment area comprises of Denton, part of Audenshaw and the adjoining area. This includes Guidebridge, Dane Bank, Haughton Green and part of Dukinfield. Part of post code M34 and SK14 is included in our cathchment area. Please ask at the reception for the precise catchment area and to make sure that you live within this boundary before you register. If you are outside the boundary, you will be asked to find another doctor.
Do you live within our Registering Boundary Area?
Please complete the GMS1 online form below and send it to us.
In addition, also download the Denton Medical New Patient Registration PDF form below and type in the relevant text fields. This applies to each member of your family.
Completed forms and enquiries pertaining to registration of patients can be emailed to the practice.
However, we will ask to see proof of photo identity, such as passport with the patient's name, date of birth and evidence that you are ordinarily resident in the UK.
We will also ask for proof of address which should be within our catchment area, such as a recent utility bill (gas, electricity, water or landline phone bill).
If you have just come into the UK, we will need proof that you intend to work or study in the UK (work permit or supporting letter from your employer or the education provider).
To be accepted onto the practice list you will need to arrange your new patient health check. This should be booked at the time of registration and completed within 4 weeks of registration.
Your registration forms take 48 hours to process and your health check should normally be completed before you may book your first appointment to see a doctor.
Asylum seekers are entitled to the same health services as other UK residents. To register, you must prove your identity by an ARC card or Home Office papers and also provide proof of where you live.
Parents or guardians can register a baby at the practice by completing GMS1 Online Form.
Also attach a copy of the birth certificate. They should ensure that they quote the baby's NHS number that has been provided to them through the maternity unit or from child health department.
If you wish to see a GP and are visiting the area for more than 24 hours but less than three months, you can apply to register with the practice as a temporary resident.
The application can be made using GMS3 Form below.
