Join the Practice

We are pleased to accept all patients from Sherborne and some of the surrounding areas, please check before registering that you are within our catchment area.

You will be registered with your chosen GP if you have a preference but you may consult with any GP of your choice, though we recommend that you see the same GP regularly, where possible, to ensure continuity of care.

Online registration with the practice

New patients can register electronically with us, saving the need to download and print, or collect and then drop back off registration forms from reception.

This also helps us with our target to print less as part of the Greener Surgery Initiative we are a part of.

For any new patients wishing to register that are within our catchment area (see the following section), please click on the link below:

Online registration

Live within boundary area?

The area outlined in orange in the middle of the map below is the main practice area and we regret that we cannot accept new patients from outside this boundary. Patients already registered with us who move within the outer blue boundary are able to stay registered at the Practice.

Our Practice Catchment Boundary has been set and agreed by NHS Dorset, accepting out of area registrations is a voluntary service by the individual Practices to decide whether they accept out of area patients and unfortunately this is not something that our surgery has opted in to. 

For us to provide the best service to our local residents we need to have defined boundaries. We cannot provide services for patients outside of this area as it may affect the services we provide. So regrettably you would need to register at a GP surgery closer to your home address.

You are still able to register using the paper forms and can pre-register by downloading the forms below. When you have completed all of the details on both forms please print them out and bring them into the surgery.



We are proud to be a Safe Surgery and will never insist on proof of address or identification, however if you can provide us with these it is helpful. There is a list below of acceptable forms of identification.

  • NHS Card
  • Vehicle Registration Document
  • Bank/Building Society statement
  • Credit card statement
  • Utility Bill – electricity, gas, water, telephone
  • TV Licence,
  • Addressed Payslip,
  • Council Tax Statement
  • P45/P60 Statement


If you are homeless then you are still able to register with us using a temporary address. This can be a friend's address, a day centre or our surgery address.

We need the pre-registration form AND either the adult or child (depending on age) forms filling out. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. Please complete as much information as you can on these forms. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.

Pre-Registration Form (all new patients need to complete this form)

Adult Registration Form

Child Registration Form (under 18s)

Newborn Registration Form

All new patients are encouraged to see one of our HCAs for a general health assessment, please bring a urine sample with you. If you are already taking medication then you will need an appointment with a GP


Online services once you are registered:

Once you have registered with us you will be able to make appointments and order repeat medication online or via the NHS/Airmid apps on your phone.  You will need a unique username and password which you can ask for.

If you are logging in via our website, from the Home Screen select one of the boxes towards the bottom of the page (Order Your Repeat Prescription, Request Appointment etc) and this will take you to our secure SystmOne Log On screen.

If you are using one of the apps there are shortcuts along the bottom of the home pages to take you to the required page.
