Our catchment area is within the blue shaded area of the map below. The boundary is set with the agreement of the local Clinical Commissioning Group that ensures that all areas in the locality are covered by local practices. Patients registered at the practice should be resident within this area. If you wish to register with us and are not sure if your address is within the boundary or not then please discuss this with reception who can advise you.
What happens if you move out of area?
If you move out of our catchment area then we will need to ask you to register at a different practice. We appreciate that this can be challenging and that if you have not moved that far you may prefer to remain registered with us, but there are several reasons why it is important that we do this.
The main reason is that other services, such as community nursing, midwifery services, and mental health services are closely linked to where you live and if you live outside our area then we may not be able to connect with these services in the same way, if at all, should you need them. This can create real problems in providing good care. It would also not be possible to do a home visit for someone outside our area.
We also need to be fair to all our patients and so although you may feel that you would not need these services or a home visit, we should not discriminate against those who would need these services.
If there is an active health concern at the time you move house then we don't want your health to suffer and will be supportive over the transition period. We can also help to introduce you to your new practice if your health needs are complex.
