Fond Farewell to Dr. Giblin

Glemsford Surgery is very sad to share that Dr. Mary Giblin is leaving us for pastures new.  Dr. Giblin will be very sadly missed and we know that our patients, friends, and carers will join us to wish her all the best in the future.  Dr. Giblin has been a Partner at Glemsford Surgery since 1999 and has worked tirelessly to provide excellent care over the years.  We thank her for her years of service to Glemsford and our neighbouring villages and wish her all the best for the future!

In line with national guidance, antibody testing (to see if you have had Coronavirus) will be rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way.  It has begun with NHS hospital staff.  We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to different staff and patient groups.  Meanwhile, please may we request that you DO NOT ASK YOUR GP about availability.  This will help us to help you with all other urgent calls.  We will make an announcement as soon as we can.

New Patient Registration

We are happy to accept new patients. Please take time to register when you move into the area (map opposite), preferably in advance of your first appointment.

We invite all newly registered patients to complete relevant paperwork, which will be followed by an appointment with a nurse. It is often very useful to keep a repeat slip from your previous surgery, as it can take a few weeks before we get your medical records. 

In order to ensure we have all of the relevant information  to register you as a new patient, please take a few moments to complete the forms below - thank you.  Please note there are different forms for adult and child registrations.


GMS1 Registration Form - this is your registration form and must be completed.

Adult New Patient Questionnaire - this will help us to ensure we have all of your current medical information before we receive copies of your medical history from your previous GP.

Information Sharing Consent form - this is a very important form to ensure patients are aware of their options when considering who to share health information with.

New Patient Alcohol Screening - this is a short questionnaire designed to understand current alcohol intake.


GMS1 Registration Form - to be completed by parent/guardian/carer of child to be registered.

Child New Patient Questionnaire - to be completed by parent/guardian/carer of child to be registered.
