We provide care to patients in parts of the Burton area.
We encourage all members of the family to register with the practice.
If you live in our practice area and wish to register as a patient at our surgery then we need certain information from you and each member of your family so as to be able to trace your previous medical records.
We advise you here on how you may register as there are several methods of doing so.
Prior to any appointments with a GP unless it is an emergency it will be necessary for you and all members of the family over 5 years of age to attend for a new patient health check. This will be with our Health care Assistant or a Practice Nurse.
After confirming with the surgery, that you live in our catchment area you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you to register at the practice. Please refer to our Wetmore Road Surgery Boundary Map to see if you are eligible to register with this practice
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. You may print this off, fill it out and bring it with you to the surgery. Alternatively you may wish to collect this from the surgery.
In addition to your registration form and medical questionnaire you will be asked to complete a Data Sharing information form. You have a choice of what information you would like to share and with whom. The information shared will solely be used for the benefit of your care. If you chose not to complete the consent form and do nothing you will be automatically opted in to share your information.
You can request a doctor of your choice but this will depend on availability. Please note you may have to wait longer to see your preferred GP and it may not be possible to see them in cases of urgent consultations.
The practice offers a new text messaging service. Appointment reminders, cancellations and health campaign messages. If you do not wish to use the service please completed the opt-out form below and hand it into reception.
