How to Register with the Practice

Thank you for considering registering with our practice.

You can register with the practice online.

Step 1:  Check you live in our catchment area to avoid disappointment

We can only register patients who currently live within our catchment area.

Please click on the link below to check if your address is within our area.

You can visit the NHS website for more information about registering with a GP Practice.

Step 2:  Complete online registration form

Click below for:

Adult (Over 16 years old ) New patient registration form Adult Registration Form

Child (Under 16 years old ) New patient registration form Child Registration Form

Step 3: Email the following to us at admin.ephc@nhs.net
  • Your Signature (can be digital – scan/photo of your handwritten signature) to confirm you wish to register with the practice (this is a current NHS England requirement)
  • Two forms of Acceptable ID ( 1 Photo ID & 1 Proof of address )(if not possible, please let us know)

Acceptable Photo Identification: Photo Driving Licence, Passport or European ID Card.

Acceptable Proof of Address: Tenancy agreement, Mortgage statement, Bank statement, Utility bill (date within the past 3 months) etc.

For children under 16 years of age, parents/ guardians should aim to provide a copy of Birth certificate and Immunisation record (in English).

Step 4:  Optional: Download both the NHSApp & Airmid apps 

Use the NHSApp first to create your NHSLogin (it may require you to upload a copy of your Photo ID). It can help if you have your NHS number to hand.

You can use the same NHSLogin to access the Airmid app, which is linked to our practice’s healthcare IT system (called SystmOne) . The Airmid app has some functionality  not  currently in the NHSApp (e.g. video consultations) and vice versa is true too, which is why we recommend you download both Apps.

Both these apps will enhance your digital experience as a patient at this practice.

Step 5:  Await confirmation that you have been registered

We aim to register you as quickly as possible and within 7 working days. If you have given us a UK mobile phone number, we will send you a text message to confirm you have been registered. If you do not receive such a message, you can email us at admin.ephc@nhs.net for an update.

Once registered, you can seek help/advice via an online consultation which you can access through the NHSApp or our practice website here.

Until you have submitted your ID you will not be registered at the practice.
