Registering with us

Shakespeare Health Centre registers patients from its catchment area however patients can register with a GP surgery outside of their catchment as long as it is practical for the GP surgery to provides medical services in a nearby area. You can register permanently with some GP surgeries outside your local area.

This can be helpful if you:

  • want to use a GP surgery near your work instead of your home
  • prefer the services of a GP surgery that’s further away

Your GP Practice may ask you for necessary documentation e.g. proof of identity and proof of address;

  • for safety and security reasons and,
  • to assess if their address is too far away to provide the necessary services
