Catchment Area

Registering with a GP surgery outside your local area can affect the NHS services that you can access including:

  • Home visits and urgent care from your GP, including out of hours care
  • Community services, such as physiotherapy and midwife appointments

How to Register With us


You can pick up a registration form at our sites at Stanhope, Wolsingham or St Johns Chapel

When Registering:

  • Return the completed form to the practice
  • Bring Photographic ID etc. Passport, Drivers Licence
  • Proof of Address such as Utility Bill

Registering Children

Children under 16 need to be registered by their parent or guardian. This usually means filling in a separate form. You may also be asked to provide a form of ID to prove that you’re their parent or guardian.

If you have a personal child health record (red book) from the birth of your child, it will help to provide this.

Registering for someone you care for under the Mental Capacity Act

If someone over 16 is unable to register because they cannot make decisions about their care, registration can be done by:

  • A relative
  • The main carer
  • A lasting power of attorney
  • A person appointed by a court under the Mental Capacity Act

We serve around 7,200 patients all across Weardale. Our main surgery is in Stanhope – with branch surgeries in Wolsingham and St John’s Chapel.
