Registration Process

How to register with the practice

The practice will only register patients who live within our practice boundaries. The practice area includes parts of Collier Row, Romford and Gidea Park. The boundaries are detailed on the map in the Practice Boundary Area map.

If you wish to register with the practice you must ideally complete the online registration form or contact the surgery and present with the completed paperwork at reception.

Before registering, please review our practice policies, values and practices:

  • You can download our practice leaflet here.
  • You can review our practice policies here.

To complete the registration process for children aged 5 or under, the practice requires the childs FULL IMMUNISATION HISTORY. Patients from overseas with incomplete immunisation status are advised to follow the UK vaccination schedule. Failure to provide the childs full immunisation history will delay the registration process.

North Street Medical Care takes its duty of care for our registered children and young people very seriously. Ensuring all children are up to date with their entitled vaccinations and immunisations is a priority for the practice. Medical evidence identifies significant increases in harm, clinical risk and poorer health outcomes for those who are not fully vaccinated and for children, this can lead to unnecessary vulnerabilities in their safeguarding and wellbeing.

All children under 18 years of age are required to have a new patient interview. If you do not booked or attend a new patient interview within 30 days after your registration has been confirmed, your registration will be cancelled. 

The practice operates an equal opportunities policy as follows:

  • We value our patients equally
  • We will offer equal opportunities to all patients regardless of sex, marital status, age, pregnancy, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief
  • We will not tolerate any discrimination against any patient for any of the above reasons; any such discrimination will be considered as a disciplinary offence

If you are taking a number of medications you may be asked to make an appointment to see the doctor. If a New Patient interview is required, details will be taken of:

  • any medication you are taking
  • any chronic diseases you may be suffering from
  • dates of immunisations etc.

Patients are registered with the practice but can request to see a specific doctor or either site when booking if they wish.

You will be asked to provide:

  1. Proof of Identity
  2. Proof of address
  3. Self captured photo with ID

During the application assessment, we’ll need to confirm your identity and verify your account is secure by asking to see a good quality photo of yourself where you are holding a valid photo ID –  a selfie photo.

  • Take a self-captured photo (selfie) of yourself holding your photo ID
