NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION
It is practice policy that everyone registering with East Norwich Medical Partnership as a permanent patient will be asked to provide proof of name and proof of address where this is possible. We will usually require 2 forms of ID. Suitable ID includes:
- A form of Photo ID
- Utility Bill/Bank Statement with an address
- Patients under the age of 18 will be required to provide a Birth Certificate.
All forms of ID will be verified by the Duty Receptionist.
You will be nominally registered with Thorpe Health Centre or Sprowston Primary Care Centre based on your registered address. This is an administrative process. You are free to attend appointments at either site and indeed may be offered the next available appointment for either site.
A full list of acceptable ID is available by downloading the information sheet below:
Proof of Identity Checklist
You will be asked to complete a registration Form GMS1 and a New Patient Questionnaire, allowing us to provide you with medical care in the interim period while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to us. Please ensure you complete these fully and that you sign both to avoid delays. It may take several days for your paperwork to be processed.
Our list is currently open and we register patients from within our practice boundary that has been agreed with NHS England. You can check whether you are in our Catchment Area by checking via the map on the Practice Catchment Area tab.
If you are planning to see a clinician at the time of registration, please arrive 20/30 mins early for your appointment, so we can endeavour to complete your registration prior to your appointment.
You can download Form GMS1 and our New Patient Questionnaire below.
You will be provided with the details of your Named & Accountable GP on registration.

PRACTICE CHOICES SCHEME
Please note that East Norwich Medical Partnership has chosen not to participate in the Practice Choices scheme. Therefore we do not register patients who live outside of the boundary that we have agreed with NHS England.
