With effect from the 1st April 2004 all patients will be registered with "The Practice" and NOT with a particular doctor.
You have a right to nominate a "usual" doctor within the practice but this does not guarantee you will be able to see that doctor when you want to on every occasion.
We do not operate "fixed" lists for doctors but we will endeavour to comply with your request subject to availability.
Confidentiality is assured and our computer records are covered by the data protection act.
When you first join our practice, we require you to complete an NHS registration form(GMS1)
It is also the policy of this practice to require you to complete "new patient registration documents" before we register you as a patient. This will include proof of identity and residence and details of your ethnicity (if you agree).
It is important for us to have details of your medical history and that of any other members of your family, who might be registering at the same time. This will give us immediate medical information as your medical records may take weeks to reach us from your last doctor via the Health Authority.
It is therefore very important that this form is completed as accurately and fully as possible. This will enable us to give you the best medical service.
All new patients are given a Patient Agreement when joining the practice.
Please find registration forms below to be completed and then handed into reception along with proof of ID and Address.
New Patient Registration Forms
As a new patient, if you wish to have an initial consultation with a doctor or practice nurse about a health concern you are invited to do so. This will be at your discretion.
We will however, require the following people to have a "new patient registration check"
This check can be carried out by a Doctor during any other consultation or by the Practice Nurse.
If you do not want your information to be used for any purpose beyond providing your care please let us know by completing this form so we can code your record appropriately:

WE REQUIRE YOU TO LET US KNOW

Burnham Health Centre was opened in 1971. The patients came from an amalgamation of three local practices. The original Burnham practice moved to this site from the High Street home of Dr Maxwell Summers. Burnham Health Centre merged with Taplow Health Centre in April 2015
All the doctors in the practice have at some time, worked in local hospitals before they joined our practice team. The team at Burnham Health Centre comprises of doctors, practice nurses, district nurses, health visitors, midwife and other specialist staff, which include a community podiatrist and physiotherapist. We all work together to offer the best medical services to our 22000 patients. We are also a training practice and usually have between 2 and 5 GP registrars working with us for periods of up to 12 months whilst they train to become a GP in their own right.
We will always seek to be at the forefront of primary care and also to provide services in the locality. We have a diabetic retinopathy clinic, anti-coagulation clinics, physiotherapy services, and both adult and young persons Mental Health clinics currently running at the practice.
Planned development will ensure that Burnham Health Centre is equipped to deal with the increasing demand to provide quality care to our patients. In partnership with Burnham Health Promotion Trust, The practice will embrace the broader view of "health" by providing facilities as a drop in clinics, Citizens Advice Bureau, Youth Counselling, Diabetic Education and various carers groups. We also provide support to those people of all ages and genders, who are subject to domestic violence.
