Join the practice
If you would like to register with the practice please use this form.
The health centre is very near the Grand Union Canal which goes all the way from London to Birmingham, passing through rolling countryside, industrial towns and peaceful villages. It is Britain’s longest canal, and helps thousands of people to live healthier, happier lives. In 2015 two local GP surgeries joined together and then in 2018 we merged with a third practice, so we are truly a ‘Grand Union’.
We are a health centre which provides a wide range of high quality services to meet for the needs of the local community, including families with young children, working people, people with long term health conditions, as well as those who are vulnerable and isolated. We firmly believe in the long established values of developing positive and long lasting relationships with our patients. This continuity of care ensures that we can best meet patients’ short and long term health and social needs.
We believe that care and support is not just about medical input, and have therefore developed a range of other support services on site that we feel better enable us to meet local need; helping people feel less isolated, and enjoy happier and healthier lifestyles.
Our philosophy is to provide services and access to all local people. We deliver our services from welcoming and purpose-built premises and meet all of the latest requirements for access and safety. We look forward to meeting you here.
‘To provide an appropriate and rewarding experience for our patients whenever they need our support’
Our core values that are shared among the partners and staff are:
We welcome all patients irrespective of background and medical condition.
We are a health centre which provides a wide range of high quality services to meet the needs of the local community, including families with young children, working people, people with long term health conditions, as well as those who are vulnerable and isolated.

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:
1. How quickly can I register?
We accept all registrations and normally register patients within 48 hours. It can take longer to get an NHS number if you have not previously had one
2. What delays registration?
Delays can happen to your registration process if you do not give us your correct details. We need you to make sure when you fill in the form it is accurate and you give us your correct date of birth, post code, phone number, address and name
3. How quickly can I see a doctor after registration?
You can see a doctor/nurse as soon as you are registered as long as there is an available appointment for you.
