New Patient Registration

Welcome to the Burwell Surgery!

We care for patients in Burwell and the villages of Exning, Reach, Swaffham Prior, Swaffham Bulbeck and Fordham.

If you would like to register with us, please complete and return your registration form GMS1 along with the new patient questionnaire. It is very helpful to supply your NHS number, which you can obtain from your old surgery.

Each application on behalf of a child (16 years and below) will need to be accompanied by either a birth certificate or medical card.

To register new born babies, please bring your delivery discharge form and ask for a GMS1 to complete.

If you are taking any regular medications, we ask you to book an appointment with a GP, using our askmyGP (contact us: 01638 741234 if you are not able to use this service) before you need to request a repeat prescription.

We would also like to bring to your attention our Online Services section of the website. By registering for online services, you can order repeat prescriptions online. Please ask our Reception team for details of how to sign up if you are interested.

Accessible Information: Making Information Clearer for Patients

Here at Burwell Surgery, we are dedicated to the needs of all our patients, as such we would like to ensure that all information we send to you is clear and that you are able to understand it.  If you feel you would like additional support please let us know.

Changes to Personal Details

Please notify the practice as soon as you can of any change of address or telephone number, so that your records can be kept up to date to ensure that reminders for blood tests, health checks, smears etc. go to your correct address. It is also important that we have your correct address and telephone number if the doctor needs to make a home visit.

If you move out of the Practice area the doctors are no longer responsible for your health needs. We therefore advise you to register with a Surgery in the area you live as soon as possible. Please ask at reception for further details.
