Thank you for enquiring about registering with the Underwood Surgery. You will need to register in person with the documents and form listed below. To check that you are eligible for registration, please read the section about the practice area by clicking here, where you can also use our checker tool.

Click the download button to download a copy of the form that you will need to submit in order to register with us. Please print the form and complete as fully as you can and bring the evidence requested as we cannot process incomplete forms:

  • Registration Form
  • proof of identity: a valid passport or a photo-card driving licence.(not required if you are a University student).Please note that photocopies are not accepted
  • proof of address: a recent bank statement, utility bill, council tax bill, or a letting agreement / contract. (not required if you are a University student). Please note that photocopies are not accepted

You are resident in UK

If you have been fully registered with a GP in the UK before, it helps us to have your NHS number for section 8. As it says on the form, this is not your National Insurance number. It is a 10-digit long number and does not contain any letters. If you do not know it and do not have any hospital letters etc with it on, your current GP Surgery will be able to help you.

If you are moving within the UK, please ensure that you are also able to give us your previous address, including your postcode. We will need this in order to trace your medical records.

You are not resident in UK

If you have never registered with a GP in the UK before then please ensure that you provide and complete the following additional forms and information.


Children under the age of 16 whose parent/guardian is registered with the practice or registering at the same time will need to provide either:

  • An original birth certificate or a certified copy
  • A valid passport

Please return the completed forms and supporting documents for all family members wishing to register. We must check all forms carefully so please allow for the time this will take when you choose to come and attend.

When to register in person at main surgery

Please DO NOT come to register on Mondays as we are particularly busy. We would suggest Tuesday through to Friday afternoons as these are likely to be quieter times. Afternoons are preferable to mornings.
