FLU VACCINATIONS: DON'T MISS YOUR FLU VACCINATION! Flu occurs every year, usually in the winter, which is why it’s sometimes called seasonal flu. It’s a highly infectious disease with symptoms that come on very quickly. Colds are much less serious and usually start gradually with a stuffy or runny nose and a sore throat. A bad bout of flu can be much worse than a heavy cold. The most common symptoms of flu are fever, chills, headache, aches and pains in the joints and muscles, and extreme tiredness. Healthy individuals usually recover within two to seven days, but for some the disease can lead to hospitalisation, permanent disability or even death.  Appointments for flu vaccinations for eligible patients (over 65s and those under 65 in relevant at risk groups) are now available to book at Topcliffe Surgery in November. We are also offering Pneumococcal and shingles vaccinations for eligible patients.  Please speak to a member of the reception team or see 'Latest News' for more information.

New Patient Registration

registrationIf you wish to register with the Practice please come and speak to one of our receptionists – or ask someone else to do this on your behalf.  You will be given a form to fill out.  This requests all the information that we need in order to register you as a patient, including the details of your last doctor so that we can obtain your medical records.  Please fill out the form and return it to the receptionist. 

The surgery does ask that patients aged 18 and over provide evidence of identity and address when registering with the practice.  This should be one form of photo-ID ie passport or driving licence and another item such as a utility bill or bank statement.

As it can take several weeks for us to receive your medical records you will also be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire and return it to the receptionist. If you wish to complete the registration form and new patient questionnaire now these can be printed out using the link below.

You will be registered with the Practice but with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you.  This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice.  If you wish you may state a preference for seeing a particular doctor and this will be recorded on your computer record. 

When you make an appointment please make it clear if you wish to see a particular doctor.  At certain times this may mean that you are not able to get to see your preferred choice of doctor within two working days, but you will always be able to see a doctor within this time.

For all telephone contact 24 hours a day use 01845 577 297
