To register as a patient at Bloxham and Hook Norton Surgeries your home address must fall within our practice boundary (see map opposite).
To register you need to complete the New patient Registration form and the New patient questionnaire. Both forms are available from either Bloxham or Hook Norton surgery or online pre-registration versions can be completed below. You will also need to provide proof of identification and proof of address.
Following your registration your previous records will be requested. It can take several weeks before your records arrive – except if urgent. The accuracy of the information you provide us during registration is therefore very important. The importance of keeping this information accurate is also crucial within our practice so we also ask for you to please keep us up to date with any other changes in the future.
Please note, if you change your landline or mobile phone number, your address, or your email address please notify the practice as soon as possible so that we can update our records.
If your address falls near the edges of this boundary we advise that you contact the practice to confirm that you are eligible to register.
Patients who move out the practice area need to register with a new practice, even if the move is only to Banbury or a village outside our area.
We regret the inconvenience this causes but the resources of the practice are limited and we can only maintain a good service to patients by restricting our area in this way.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
