Registering as a Patient


We are pleased to accept new patients who live in Corsham and surrounding areas onto our practice list (see Practice area)


Does it matter where I live?

Yes, we can only accept patients who live within our practice area.


Who will I be registered with?

You will be registered with The Porch Surgery and will be allocated a 'usual doctor'.  We do not operate 'personal' lists and patients are at liberty to see any clinician they choose.  However, we strongly encourage patients with chronic diseases or on-going illnesses to try and see the same clinician for continuity of care.



For all new Patient Registrations please can you complete a Registration form (GMS 1) along with an Adult Registration Pack for those 16 and over or an Under 16's Registration Pack. 


When you return the forms to the surgery YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE 2 FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION one of which confirms your present address - as follows:

  • Medical Card with NHS Number
  • Marriage Certificate/ Birth Certificate
  • Current Driving Licence
  • Current Passport
  • Local Authority Rent Card (not private Landlord)
  • Mortgage statement
  • Paid Utility Bills (not mobile unless Contract)
  • Bank statement or printout showing current address
  • National Insurance Number Card


  • Full name including previous names
  • Date and place of birth
  • Last address (we cannot register you without a previous address)
  • New address and post code
  • Last name and address of your previous doctor
  • NHS number (if known) – this is different from your National Insurance number!
