New Patients

Register as a New Patient

Thank you for looking at joining our Practice.

Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

Please check you are living within our catchment area (click on the image opposite for a detailed map)

To register with us please complete the relevant online form below.

Upon registration your allocated GP is Dr A Nijjar. Please note this is for admin purposes only and you are free to see any GP of your choice.

All new patients are welcome to book for a New Patient Healthcheck with one of our Healthcare Assistants. This will include taking your height, weight, blood pressure, dipping a urine sample and taking a medical history – please note no blood tests will be taken during this check. If you feel you need blood tests please book to see a GP.

A copy of our Practice Leaflet is available for reference: Practice Leaflet 2021.

Online Access

Once you are registered you will be able to sign up for online access – this will give you access to your coded GP records, allow you to book and cancel appointments, order repeat medications and view your test results and vaccination history. To sign up please visit Birmingham & Solihull Health App.

For further information about the app take a look at our Online Services Page.

 

Find My NHS Number

A new service is now live to help find your NHS number. This service is for anyone living in England who has forgotten or does not know their NHS number.

You can also use this service on behalf of someone else where the name, date of birth and registered home postcode is known.

You can opt for the number to be sent to you by text, email or letter.

New Patients Influenza Vaccination Information

ONLY THE PATIENTS MOST AT RISK are eligible for a flu vaccination.

As you are new to us, we have not yet received your medical records; therefore you must provide us with the following, or we will NOT be able to vaccinate you.

 1. Confirmation from your previous GP that you fall into the “AT RISK GROUP”. Arrange for them to fax us on 0121 472 3775 or e-mail us at request.bournbrook@nhs.net.

 2. If relevant, confirmation that you regularly use inhaled or swallowed steroids, for any condition, including Asthma. Note: If you do have asthma and only use Salbutamol / or Ventolin inhalers then you DO NOT qualify. You must have had “Steroids” in the past 12 months and can prove this to us.

Steroid examples:

Beclomethasone, Clenil, Qvar, Budesonide, Pulmicort, Symbicort, Fluticasone, Flixotide, Seretide, Prednisilone

 

Flu Vaccine Eligibility: Medical Conditions

The seasonal flu vaccine is offered free of charge to anyone who is over six months of age and has one of the following medical conditions:

  • chronic (long-term) respiratory disease, such as asthma needing steroids, COPD or bronchitis
  • chronic heart disease including heart failure and chronic heart and vascular disease including stroke and TIA
  • chronic kidney disease 
  • chronic liver disease
  • chronic neurological disease including polio and MS
  • diabetes 
  • a weakened immune system due to conditions, such as HIV or AIDs, or splenectomy or treatments that suppress the immune system, such  as chemotherapy and radiotherapy
  • Pregnant women

NOT ELIGIBLE

The good news, if you are not eligible, is that you can still obtain a flu vaccination for a small fee.  Several local Chemists provide this service for a small fee. Your nearest store is just around the corner at Jhoots Pharmacy.

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.

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.
