When you register at Health E1 Medical Centre your first point of contact may be with a Nurse Practitioner. All of our nursing team have undertaken advanced training to look after many of your health needs that previously only a doctor could do.

When registering you will be asked for a medical card or some other proof of your identification. If you do not have any, please discuss this with the receptionist.

As part of registration with the practice we ask you to attend a new patient health check with our health care assistant. This involves answering some questions and undergoing a simple health check.

We have access to language shop for telephone interpreting. We can also book face to face interpreters for booked appointments.
