How to register with the practice

We are no longer accepting registrations at our branch site at Wood Street.

All new patients applying to register at the Surgery will be registered at our main site, Rivermead Gate Medical Centre, 123 Rectory Lane, Chelmsford, CM1 1TR.

Should you wish to proceed with your application, you should understand that this will be on the basis that your health services will be provided at Rivermead Gate Medical Centre and you will need to attend there for all medical treatment. We will not be able to offer you services at the branch site.

Come into the surgery during normal surgery hours and ask to register. You will be given a registration form and new patient questionnaire to complete and bring two forms of identification with you. Please allow 7 working days for your registration to be processed and ensure you have given up to date contact numbers so that we may contact you if needed.  You can choose your preferred doctor although this will not guarantee you will be seen by this practitioner.

You will be required to complete a new patient questionnaire and to complete a GMS1 Registration form and to provide evidence of your identity and residential address.

You will have a named accountable GP who is responsible for your overall care. However, you can still see your GP of choice. Contact the practice if you wish to know who your named GP is.

You can download a Registration Form and New Patient Questionnaire and the Practice Leaflet from the links below:
