Register with our practice

Please note: you must within our Practice Boundary to register at Parkwood Surgery.

You will need to attach two forms of ID with the registration form. One is to be an official valid photographic ID, the other is to prove residency within our catchment area, via a copy of an official letter/bill.

Catchment Area (Practice Boundary)

You can search for your postcode by clicking the magnifier in the top right corner of the map, this will indicate whether you live within the boundary or not.

Named GP

When registering, you will be assigned to a GP as your Named Doctor. You may express a preference over who you are assigned to.

Access to Records

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and Access to Health Records Act, patients may request to see their medical records. Such requests should be made through the operation officer and may be subject to an administration charge. No information will be released without the patient consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.

Proxy Access

Proxy access is available for online services. This is for patients who are under 16, and for those who have difficulty accessing online services themselves.

To request for Proxy Access for patients over 16, a consent form must be signed by the patient.

Parents can request proxy access for their children.

Before giving you access, the GP surgery may need to check:

  • ID for you and the child, for example passports
  • documents that help to prove you have parental responsibility, for example a birth certificate
  • with anyone else that shares parental responsibility with you
  • for safeguarding issues
  • that the child consents to your access (agrees to it) or lacks capacity to consent, if they are aged 11 or over

You do not have to live at the same address as the child to have access.

You can have proxy access for more than 1 child, and a child can have more than 1 proxy acting on their behalf.

Please note: When requesting Proxy Access, both individuals must be registered to Parkwood Surgery. We cannot set up proxy access for patients to those who are not registered with the surgery.
