New Patient Registration
We are currently trying to help with your registrations over the telephone to save you having to come down to the surgery unnecessarily. There is also an NHS App, the link is on our homepage, which you can download and this will allow you to register online. Should you need any help with this please give us a call.
We welcome any person living within the practice catchment area (see below). Your registration will be with the Practice and you will be able to request an appointment with any of the doctors or nurses at the Practice.
Patient registration forms can be obtained from the links below. Please complete both the Registration Form (GMS1) and the New Patient Questionnaire and return them to the Practice reception. Alternatively, paper copies can be obtained from any of our receptionists.

All new patients are ideally required to produce two suitable forms of personal identification before they are accepted as a patient of the Practice. (These would usually include a valid UK Passport or Photo Driving Licence AND one recent utility bill).
All newly registered patients over the age of 16 will need to have a new patient medical with one of the Nurses. Patients under the age of 16, who are on any regular repeat medications, will also need a new patient medical.
Culcheth Medical Centre covers the following areas: Culcheth, Croft, Winwick (part), Gorse Covert, Locking Stumps, Cinnamon Brow, Rixton, Glazebrook, Glazebury, Lowton (part), Leigh (part) and Risley.
Guide to GP Services
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.

You are classed as a Military veteran if you have served just 1 day in the armed forces (regular or reserve). Making yourself known as a veteran can lead to earlier identification of service related issues and access to treatment. This includes improved access to psychological Therapies. If you are registering with us please tell us if you are a veteran.
We would also like to know if a member of your family is a military veteran , please inform the reception staff. If you have a friend or know a veteran, please ask them to inform their GP practice. Staff will be happy to answer any questions.
