Register with the practice
The Practice registers all patients who reside either permanently, or on a temporary basis, within our catchment area (see below). However, if you live outside the practice catchment area, you will be able to register under the "Out of Area" scheme but please be aware that under this scheme you are not be eligible for home visits.
We do not discriminate on any grounds and operate a 'Clean Slate' policy for patients transferring from other Practices.
Visitors from overseas who do not have access to NHS treatment may be seen at the doctor's discretion subject to a consultation fee and payment for any medication, investigations etc. Please see the notice in reception for details of charges.
Becoming a patient at Ampthill Practice is easy and takes just a few minutes. To ensure that we have your current medical and personal details, please complete our online registration . Before you start, please ensure that you have two documents confirming your identification, that you are able to upload as part of this process. One of these documents needs to be a form of photo I.D. and the other needs to be evidence of your address. Acceptable forms of Identification include: Photo Driving License, Passport, Tenancy agreement, Mortgage statement, Bank statement, Utility bill (date within the past 3 months) etc.
if you have previously registered with a GP Surgery in the UK you must provide your NHS Number. If you do not know this please contact your previous GP Surgery. If you need assistance please ask for a member of staff.
It can take up to five days for us to fully process your registration, but once completed, your medical records will be transferred to us and a new medical card will be sent to your home address. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.
"Out of Area" Patients
For patients who wish to register with our practice but reside outside of our practice boundary, please be aware that under this scheme you will not be eligible for home visits. This applies also to our Patients who are already registered and wish to remain with us but move to a location outside of our practice boundary. Please understand that we are happy for you to remain registered with us. Home visiting outside of the practice boundary is not within our NHS contract and therefore the NHS "Out of Area" GP home visiting service is operated through NHS 111.
If either of the above applies to you, please complete and sign the "Out of Area" registration agreement document below. You will be asked to upload a signed copy as part of the online registration process.
All the information you give is confidential and is subject to the Data Protection Act.
Children under 16 years:
Child Health Record Book (Red book) or a copy of the Immunisation records, if from abroad. Please note that we are unable to register a child under 16 without a parent/guardian being registered here.

Easy Read and Large Print Registration Forms
If for some reason you are unable to complete the above online registration process due to disability or visual impairment. Please accept our apologies. Below you can find both easy read and large print registration forms. These can be printed off and completed and handed in to reception along with copies of your identifification documents.
Your Named GP
The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. Therefore to do this fairly and impartially, we have selected patients by surname to match to a doctor.
We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Your named GP will not be available at all times.
You do not need to take any further action and will be informed of your named GP in due course. In the meantime, if you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
