New Patient Registration
The practice welcomes new registrations. Patients wishing to join the practice will be asked to complete registration forms prior to seeing health care support worker for a new patient check appointment. The appointment is to record relevant medical details and to carry out a basic health check.
Although you can register and be seen at any one of our sites, we do recommend that you see the same doctor for ongoing problems.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. You may print off a registration form and new patient questionnaire by clicking on the links below, fill them out and bring them in with you on your first visit to the practice. The Registration Form should be brought into the surgery with documents which confirm identity and proof of address if possible. examples are:
- Driving licence (photo card if possible)
- Birth certificate
- Bus Pass
- Any document that confirms your current address within a three month period
- Other documents may be accepted dependent on circumstances - please speak to our reception team if you have any concerns about the documentation you hold

The Larwood Surgery is situated on the northeast side of Worksop close to Bassetlaw Hospital on Kilton Hill. We provide a full range of NHS primary care services to our registered patients. At Larwood surgery there is a physiotherapy practice based on-site catering for both NHS and private patients.

The Oakleaf Surgery covers the population of Harworth and surrounding area. The surgery is situated in the new Harworth Primary Care Centre.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
After consideration the practice has asked the CCG to amend Westwood Surgery’s practice boundary to match that of Larwood Health Partnership.
The current boundary was set when Westwood Surgery was an 8-8 walk-in centre and the boundary was set at the whole of Bassetlaw. The contract that was awarded to LHP was for a standard GP Contract ie 8 am – 6.30 pm Monday –Friday but the boundary was not altered.
The changed boundary would not affect those patients already registered at Westwood Surgery as we would not ask them to leave the list, but we would ask any new patients to register with a practice closer to their home. The main reason for this request is due to the distance a GP would need to travel to carry out a home visit; potentially for a patient at the other side of Retford the doctor may have an hour round trip plus the time for the visit; this would significantly reduce the number of visits that particular doctor could do. We know that there are other well-established practices in Retford and the surrounding villages where patient could register.
