You can register by completing a registration form which can be obtained from the practice. As part of our registration process you are required to attend a short medical with our healthcare assistant within one month of requesting registration. You will not be registered with the practice until you have attended for this medical. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.
If you need an appointment whilst waiting to attend your medical you can be seen for one appointment only or request one prescription as a non-registered patient.
This medical is not necessary for children under five years of age.
To register you will need to bring a photo ID such as your passport or driving license and proof of address such as a recent utility bill.
You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.

Patients who move from within the inner boundary to Stewartby may remain registered with the Practice if they so wish, however we regret that we cannot accept new patient registrations from Stewartby.

The aim is to assist those people who are away from their local practice area during the day, such as commuters, who would like to have their routine care needs met close to their place of work.
Flitwick Surgery will still offer urgent and local care as follows:
The Practice would NOT responsible for the provision of primary medical services to you and would refuse all requests for routine, ongoing care, referrals, medication reviews etc. These will all be the responsibility of the practice with which you are registered.
