New Patient Service at TMCSelf-service Waiting Room Blood Pressure Monitor
Now available to Adult Patients for Blood Pressure Checks
We welcome new patients at Tadworth Medical Centre who live within our catchment area. This includes Tadworth, Epsom Downs, Langley Vale, Kingswood, Lower Kingswood, Burgh Heath, Tattenham Corner, Walton-on-the-Hill, Nork and part of Banstead.
We have a free car park for approximately 20 vehicles which is available for our staff. Patients are also welcome to use any available spaces in our car park. There is also free street parking in surrounding roads.
If you would like to join the practice, please complete a registration form which can be picked up from reception or downloaded from the above “Registering Online” tab. Please bring the completed form along to reception with your NHS number and medical card if you have it, as well as forms of ID for each person wishing to register, one of which must confirm your home address. The information on the medical card will speed up the process of getting your records from your previous practice. An NHS medical card is issued when you first register with a GP. It contains your NHS number and other information such as your name, address, date of birth, and details of your registered practice or individual doctor.
If you have an on-going medical condition requiring regular medication and review, please make an appointment with the GP at your earliest convenience as you will need to see a GP for your first prescription request.
When you register, we will also ask you to complete a new patient questionnaire (this can also be downloaded). This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.
Please enter your postcode in to the Postcode Checker below to see if your address falls in to our catchment area before registering.
When you have completed and returned the form(s), your medical records will be transferred from your previous doctor’s surgery to Tadworth Medical Centre. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.
If you change your name, address or telephone number it is essential that you immediately inform the practice in writing with your new details.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
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. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. 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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
