New Patients

We welcome new patients to the surgery. To register, please use our new online service called “Register with a GP surgery” that makes it easy to register with New Invention Practice.

Just fill in this quick online form – to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Paper forms are still available from the surgery front desk if you need one.

Upon registering with this practice, you will be assigned an accountable GP. However you do have the right to request to see a GP of your choice.


Accountable GP Policy

An accountable GP will be assigned to every patient and where a preference is expressed, reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate this.  

Health Checks  

You will be offered a health check when you join the practice. Any patients aged 16 –74 years who have not had a consultation within the last three years may request a consultation.  

Patients 75 years and over who have not had a consultation within the last twelve months may request a health check with one of our practice team. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit could be arranged.  

Online Access

If you are over 16 and have an online account, such as through the NHS App, Patient Access, Evergreen Life or another online primary care service, you will now be able to see all the consultation notes and health records from your GP surgery written in your records after this date. For most people who use an app to access their records, access will be automatic, and you won’t need to do anything. 

If you do not have access to this service but wish to benefit from this, you can apply for online access.
