New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address.
The medical team at Stratton Medical Centre care for 11,000 patients in both urban and rural areas, covering about 100 square miles from Welcombe in the North to Wainhouse Corner in the South, Bude in the West to Bridgerule in the East.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Both forms are available at reception or can be found on the above "Registering Online" tab.
