New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you live within our practice area (see link below) you are welcome to register with our Practice. You can now register using the NHS 'Fing a GP' service.

This will enable you to register online so no need to download and print forms and bring them to the Practice. Simply click the link below and enter your details to complete the registration online.

Your completed forms will be emailed to our Practice and we will register you on our Practice system. This process can take up to a few weeks to complete.

Notice for Patients:

If you are unable to complete the online form via the link above, please complete the both New Patient Registration Form & the New Patient Questionaire and hand these into the Practice. 

There are hard copy of these forms at reception for those who are unable to print them

Completed registration forms (GMS1) and new patient questionnaires can be emailed to or posted to Grove Medical Centre, Borehamwood Shopping Park, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, WD6 4PR. 

We estimate that the waiting period for new registrations to be processed is between 3-4 weeks. 

Please ensure that all fields on the forms are completed and that the registration form (GMS1) is signed and dated to avoid further delays. It is very important that you give us accurate contact details, including mobile number (or home phone if you do not have a mobile), email address and home address. Please send proof of address with your registration forms. 

Named GP

From the 1st April 2015 all patients at The Grove Medical Centre will have a named GP. We will not be writing to patients to inform them of this.  

If you wish to know your named GP you can always ask at Reception. Patients are still entitled to choose to see any GP at the Practice and the named GP can be changed to another GP upon the patients request.

Update Personal Details

If you change your name, address or telephone number please notify the receptionist as soon as possible. It is difficult for all concerned if we cannot contact you. Proof of ID will be required to support a change of name.

Please make sure we always have an up to date phone number. 

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.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:
