Register as a Patient Online

If you are NOT registered with a GP at the moment we can still accept your registration request digitally.

We can also accept requests for online access codes by email. For both of these please email us at BMPractice.Reg@nhs.net   This email must NOT be used for any other clinical requests – we expect to get hundreds of emails which will take days to plough through so you MUST NOT use our email for clinically urgent issues – the same goes for Facebook – neither are monitored every hour of the day.
