Our patient list is open and we are registering new patients who live in and around the Banbury area. If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register.
Please attend the surgery to collect a registration pack and you will be given instructions on how to return the completed forms and what documentation is required.
Our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photo ID.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous GP. Also we will require proof of address and photo ID in the form of a utility bill, passport or driving licence. Please provide as soon as possible. Your application will not be processed until all forms received and will only be kept on file for 2 weeks
Once registered you will be able to access services at the surgery. Windrush Surgery offers a full range of NHS services as well as private services such as HGV and Taxi medicals.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT REGISTERING PATIENTS IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED WITH A GP PRACTICE IN BANBURY.
If you wish to Pre-register with the practice click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. Please make sure ALL fields are completed otherwise this will hold up the registration process.
Please make sure both forms below are filled in.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you need to fill out and send to us.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
