Register with us as a New Patient




Welcome to East Cliff Practice

We are pleased to accept registration requests from patients who are living within the area indicated on this map. We release New Patient Registration packs every Saturday morning on a first come first served basis - these can be collected by a third party should you be unavailable to attend yourself. Our Saturday morning hours are 8:00am to 10:30 am. We do not post or email out these registration packs, they must be collected from the surgery.

Whilst it is not a requirement for prospective patients to provide proof of ID, address, immigration status or an NHS number in order to receive care or see a GP, we will ask you for these as it will speed up the registration process and allow you access to online services

East Cliff Practice has around 15,700 patients registered with us. We register a small number of patients each week which is usually dependent on the number of patients leaving the Practice to maintain stable numbers and ensure the good quality service we aim to provide for our patients.

Since we aim to register as many patients as leave the practice you will be allocated to the next available doctor who has a space on their list. For this reason we cannot offer a choice of GP at registration although you will be able to request to see any GP within the same team once registered. 

The Practice currently has two teams of doctors, Blue and Green. This is to try and ensure continuity of care as much as possible, it is practice policy that we do not allow patients to switch between teams once registered.

See our practice boundary and check your postcode is within our catchment area.
