Register with us as a new patient




Registering at Bridge Street Medical Centre

We accept all Cambridge residents and students who live within the practice boundary - see map below for approximate area, please do phone and check with our reception staff if you are unsure. 

If you are eligible for NHS care this is free at the point of access. If you are not eligible for NHS care, or if you require a service that is not funded by the NHS, there may be a fee.

Our list is currently open to new registrations.


Changes to registration during the Covid-19 pandemic

Due to the current pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice: see details below.


Live within our boundary area?

Please click this link to request a registration pack from reception.

You will need proof of address and a proof of identity, please see pack for details.

Once registered you will have the choice of which doctor you see.

If you are registering a child, we would ask that that the mother is a current patient or is registering at the same time. Please bring the relevant documentation if registering a new-born baby. If your child has had immunisations outside of the UK, please bring relevant records if available.




If you are new to either of the universities we would be delighted to take care of your health. Please click this link to request a registration pack.

If you are wishing to register with the practice but are currently residing outside of Cambridge, you are welcome to start the registration process, but we will be unable to register you until you have moved to your new permanent address.

If you have not yet arrived in Cambridge, please let us know when you do so that we are able to register you promptly. This applies to both international and UK students.



Temporary patients

If you are a visitor to the area, already registered as an NHS patient and staying within our practice area, we can see you as a temporary patient for immediately necessary treatment.

Please note that where urgent prescriptions are required, you should contact your surgery (if within England) and a script could be sent electronically to a pharmacy in Cambridge.


Overseas visitors or those who have never been registered with the NHS

If you are from overseas, and are not eligible for NHS care, we are still happy to see you for medical care but there may be a standard charge. Please ask at Reception for a list of our charges. We would expect to see an EHIC card if you are a resident within a European Union member state wishing to access treatment.

Our Reception team will be able to assist you with establishing your eligibility for treatment within the NHS.
