Register as New Patient
We welcome patients seeking to register with the surgery if they live within our practice boundary. To check to see if you live within our boundary area, enlarge the boundary map on the right and click on the magnifying glass in the top left hand corner and key in your postcode - a little red dot should appear where your postcode is on the map. If it falls within our boundary, then you are eligible to register with us. Please download and complete the forms below if you would like to register with us.
Alternatively you can complete online pre-registration forms. These forms are submitted to the Practice and will be checked once a week. You will be asked to provide additional information and Identification before you are fully registered.
Once you have completed and signed the two linked forms below, please bring them to the Practice receptionist at the surgery along with two forms of ID, one preferably being photo ID, who will pass these through for processing.
The Practice covers a large area of the Wyre Forest district, operating from two sites; our main purpose built surgery at Hume Street, located in the centre of Kidderminster, and our village medical practice in Cookley.
We will ask for your records to be sent through to us from your previous GP Surgery and you will be offered an appointment with one of our doctors.
If you would like to opt out of having a Summary Care Record created please complete the relevant form, sign and date it, handing it in with the rest of your paperwork.
THE FORM ON THE RIGHT IS THE NEW PATIENT QUESTIONNAIRE AND THE FORM ON THE LEFT IS THE REGISTRATION FORM. Even if you submit these forms on-line, you will still need to attend the practice with your ID.
New Patient Health Check

Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Disabled Patient Facilities
There is a ramp giving wheelchair and disabled access into the surgery at Cookley, with wheelchair access as standard in our new building at Hume Street along with a lift to the first floor. Toilet facilities and parking are available. The Cookley Practice is in an adapted building and some of the corridors are not as wide as modern specifications might dictate.
The Aylmer Lodge Practice is now located in a purpose built building which gives easy access for all patients.
