This includes Guidebridge, Dane Bank, Haughton Green and part of Dukinfield. Part of post code M34 and SK14 is included in our cathchment area. Please ask at the reception for the precise catchment area and to make sure that you live within this boundary before you register. If you are outside the boundary, you will be asked to find another doctor.

This applies to each member of your family and the forms can be downloaded from the link above.

However, we will ask to see proof of photo identity, such as passport with the patient's name, date of birth and evidence that you are ordinarily resident in the UK.
We will also ask for proof of address which should be within our catchment area, such as a recent utility bill (gas, electricity, water or landline phone bill).
If you have just come into the UK, we will need proof that you intend to work or study in the UK (work permit or supporting letter from your employer or the education provider).
To be accepted onto the practice list you will need to arrange your new patient health check. This should be booked at the time of registration and completed within 4 weeks of registration.
Your registration forms take 48 hours to process and your health check should normally be completed before you may book your first appointment to see a doctor.
