New Patients

Patients wishing to join the practice will need to complete two forms which can be obtained from Reception. Please note that, in accordance with current government/NHS advice we are required to check for proof of identity and so the reception staff will request this. Proof of identity could be a passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate, driving licence, utility bill or bank statement. Other forms of identification may be acceptable.

When registering children we encourage parents to provide a summary of their immunisation or a copy of the immunisation pages from their “red book” so that the practice can provide a timely and effective immunisation service.

If you have booked a GP appointment prior to registering you will need to arrive at the surgery about 15 minutes before the appointment time in order to complete the forms and for the receptionist to transfer your details onto the computer. The doctor will be unable to see you until this has been done.

For those patients who do not require an appointment to see a GP, the relevant forms can be completed in your own time and returned to the receptionist who will book you in for a new patient “check”. If you are taking long term medication as a repeat prescription then we would encourage you to make an appointment for a new patient “check” with one of the doctors, so that the doctor can get an overview of your health and set up repeat prescriptions on our clinical IT system, SystmOne. Otherwise make an appointment with one of the practice nurses. Please bring a urine sample with you to this check so that we can screen for diabetes and kidney disease. Specimen containers for this can be obtained from reception.

Healthy children under the age of 12 years do not need a new patient “check”, but we do like to have their red book brought in so we can ensure vaccination records are up to date. However, if you have a child under 12 that has significant health issues you should let us know.

Registration forms and medical questionnaires can be downloaded from the above “Registering Online” section below.

The practice’s catchment area can be viewed by clicking here.

If you live outside of this area you should register with another GP practice closer to your home address.

The Practice

The practice area covers approximately 400 square miles of rural south Lincolnshire covering approximately 50 villages.  We have two surgeries;

Caythorpe Surgery, 52 High Street, Caythorpe, Grantham, Lincs, NG32 3DN and

Ancaster Surgery, 12 Ermine Street, Ancaster, Grantham, Lincs, NG32 3NP.

Both surgeries offer a full range of medical services.

If patients move outside of the practice area they are required to register with a practice in the area where they have moved to.

A recent government initiative allows practices to accept patients living beyond the defined practice boundaries but for home visits to be provided, by specific arrangement with NHS England, by a different practice.  The Caythorpe & Ancaster Practice has however decided that we are not able to engage with this scheme as we feel that to do so would dilute, and potentially compromise the care that we provide to our registered patients living within the present practice boundary.

All patients are registered at Ancaster Surgery, the practice HQ. For geographical reasons patients living in the Caythorpe area tend to consult at Caythorpe Surgery and patients living in the Ancaster area at Ancaster Surgery. As our clinical records are stored on the practice IT system and are accessible on both sites of the practice there is the option of consulting at either site of the practice.
