Sonning Common Health Centre is a surgery in South Oxfordshire, a few miles from Reading.  We accept new patients from a large area, ranging from Nettlebed in the north, North Caversham in the south, Woodcote to the east and Henley to the west.  Click here to view a map showing our practice area.


Registration with the Health Centre is easy and you now have an online alternative. You can either come to reception bringing your valid ID.   We will ask you to fill in a questionnaire about your current health, and also give you a form to complete regarding Summary Care Record.  Please note that we require both of these forms to complete your registration.  You can also fill in the pre-registration form online (see below) and take it from there. Please click here to see the Summary Care Record letter at home.

We offer all new patients a health check. You will register with one doctor for routine consultations.  However, in the case of sudden illness or emergency, any of our doctors will always be happy to see you if your own doctor is not available. Children under five are additionally registered with Dr Ralph Drury, Dr Kim Emerson or Dr Ellen for developmental checks.

Pre-Registration with the practice

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form.  When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us.  When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.  Please note that completion and submission of the form does not automatically entitle you to join the practice.

Pre-registration Form

When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire and complete the summary care record forms. We need the medical questionnaire because it can take a considerable time (sometimes up to 6 months) for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this form too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.

Online medical questionnaire for new patients

Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
