Application to join the practice
Our practice list is open and we are currently accepting new patients. If you wish to register you can do so in person at the surgery or please complete the forms listed below. To register you will need to live within the practice area (see below for the practice boundary).
Before being offered an appointment, all patients must be fully registered, either as temporary or permanent. Any patient already registered with another practice in Bath will be redirected to their registered practice or advised to register as a permanent patient at The Pulteney Practice, if they so wish. Reception will be able supply you with a brochure about the surgery, all of these details can also be viewed on the surgery website.
Please download and complete registration form in full(note there are two sides to the form, you should complete the front page and the grey section on the reverse if applicable). This should be completed by all patients registering with the surgery.
Please download & complete the new patient questionnaire in full. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records (Notes normally take 6 to 8 weeks to arrive from your previous surgery). This form should be completed by all patients over the age of 16 and by those with complex medical issues requiring medication so that the doctor is aware in advance.
Once you have printed and completed the above documents, please hand these to reception on your first visit to the practice.
All patients wishing to register will need to provide 2 forms of identification per person, we will therefore request to see evidence of identity – preferably photographic (e.g. passport), AND evidence of your address in the UK in order to determine residence within the practice boundary. Where this is not possible (for example for a young child), birth certificate and proof of address will be sufficient. Please provide copies of the identification.
If you are from overseas and have not been registered in the UK before, you need provide proof that they have a financial commitment to the UK before we can register you, e.g. a job (employment must be longer than 9 months), student (study must be more than 9 months), UK bank account statement, mortgage statement etc. Please click on the link for details required from your employer, university or college.
Please download & complete the Children under 5 form to also register with the health visitor so that developmental checks and immunisation scheduling can be arranged. Your child’s red book should be provided to the surgery at the time of registration.
For information, and to download forms regarding how we store and share your data, both internally and externally by the NHS, please click on the 'Data Sharing' button on the right hand side list.
Please forward the forms as required to either of our surgery sites together with copies of your identity. We aim to deal with your registration within 48 working hours. Please therefore allow 2 working days before booking an appointment. If we need any further information we will contact you accordingly. The practice has discretion to accept anyone who applies or to refuse to accept anyone, provided there are reasonable grounds for doing so which are non-discriminatory.
