How to register

We have an open list and warmly welcome requests for registration from patients currently living or moving into the area.

See more about our practice area.  Please fill out the out of area form below as well as the registration form if you live out of our area but wish to register with us.


If you need help completing the form, please ask. The registration form will have a brief health questionnaire included, we would be grateful if you could complete this. When returning the forms, please bring a form of ID with you showing your address (this does not have to be your current address if you have recently moved) e.g. driving license or utility bill.

We offer and recommend a FREE health check appointment for all new patients.

New Babies: Parents of new babies are advised to register the child as quickly as possible. The Registrar of Births should issue parents with an FP58 form and this should be passed to the Health Centre promptly. The Health Visitor/Community Nursery Nurse will be happy to take the form to the receptionist.   To register a new baby you can Print the  New Baby Registration form Newborn Infant Registration and  pass this into the Health Centre along with the birth certificate and a form of parent/guardian ID.

Temporary Residents: If you are temporarily staying in the area we can register and treat you as a “Temporary Resident”. If you are likely to be here for 3 months or more it is probably worth registering and we can have your records transferred. See the “Other Information” page for details details on medical care for visitors from abroad. Temporary Resident Registration

Choice of Doctor:

Who is my “Named Usual GP”?

ALL patients at this NHS practice will be formally registered with the “Kingskerswell & Ipplepen Medical Practice”. On individual records however every patient is allocated to a “Named Usual GP”.

“Named Usual GP” allocation has had to be updated and so from the 1st November 2018 the practice will be using the following alphabetical split of surnames:

Kingskerswell Health Centre

A to C = Dr Anna Kennaird normally has 5 surgeries a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Friday mornings

D to G = Dr Helen Burlington normally has 4 surgeries a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays

H to J = Dr Rachael Prince normally has 4 surgeries a week on Mondays and Tuesdays

K to Q = Dr Richard Sanford normally has 7 surgeries a week on Tuesday mornings ,Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

R to Z = Dr Paul Melling normally has 5 surgeries a week on Monday mornings, Tuesday afternoons, Wednesdays and Friday afternoons

Ipplepen Health Centre

A to D = Dr Emily Clapham normally has 4 surgeries a week on Tuesdays and Fridays

E to J = Dr Phil Windless normally has 5 surgeries a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday afternoons.

K to Q = Dr Hannah Oliphant normally has 5 surgeries a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday mornings

R to Z = Dr John McCormick normally has 5 surgeries a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Friday mornings

Where patients have previously expressed a preference to have a particular doctor as their “Named Usual GP” this has been retained.

No matter who your Registered / Named GP is you can see whoever you want to see in the GP team.

Parking & Prescriptions: This medical practice operates from two modern health centre premises both with free patient car parking and prescription dispensing facilities. Ipplepen Health Centre has an in house prescription dispensary and Kingskerswell Health Centre has an independent pharmacy on the premises.

Foreign Languages: Both health centres can arrange access to interpreters who can assist patients who do not speak or understand English, or for whom English is a second language. The interpreter is available via telephone and as additional consultation time will be required some advanced notification would be appreciated.
