New Patients Registration
Eynsham Medical Group welcomes new patients, and we would like to make your registration process as straightforward as possible.
Since we are based over 2 sites you may register at either site, whichever is the closest to your place of residence; however, since your notes are held electronically you may receive treatment from either site.
To register with the practice you will need to come into either Eynsham Medical Centre or Long Hanborough Surgery and complete some forms. You will need to provide both proof of address and photographic ID for all adults in the family when registering, so please bring suitable documents with you.
To become a permanent patient on our practice list you will need to be resident within our practice boundary and planning to be permanently resident for six months or more; for periods less than this we will register you as a temporary patient (this means that we will look after your medical needs but your medical records will remain with the practice at which you are already registered). If your period of residency subsequently extends beyond six months, you will then be changed to permanent status and your medical records will be obtained from your previous practice.
On registering as a permanent patient we will ask you to complete a questionnaire about your medical history. Please also ask about registering for ‘Patient Access’; this will enable you to order repeat medication, book appointments and view some of your medical information on line.
When you register with us, you will be allocated a named GP. For continuity of care we encourage you to see your named GP each time you come to the surgery. There will be times, however, when s/he isn’t available to see you and when this happens we will provide an explanation and offer you an appointment with another clinician. If you are not happy with your allocated GP you may request a change and we will endeavour to accommodate your request.
Checklist of what you need to bring with you to register:
- Photographic proof of identity such as a new format driving license or a passport.
- One item of correspondence, such as a utility bill or a bank statement, showing your name and current address as proof of residency within our practice area.
- Details of your current GP.
(Please note: copies of documentation will be taken for our records and in most cases a decision concerning successful registration with the practice will be made within 24 hours. If you need to make an appointment when you register the receptionist will be able to book an appointment for you subject to confirmation of your registration.)

Please note that every care has been taken in the preparation of information on this Postcode Mapping Tool, however there may be instances where the Postcode Mapping Tool does not include your location even though it is within our Practice Boundary. An example of this may be new housing developments where the postcodes are not yet included on Google.
In these circumstances please check on the Practice map above for more details, or contact the Practice.
