Attention Parents

If your baby was born on or after 29th October 2002, please ensure that you take your hospital discharge notes with you to the Register office when visiting to register your baby's birth. These discharge notes contain the baby's NHS number and enable the Registrar to issue a form for you to register the baby with your family doctor.

Should you forget to take the notes with you, don't worry, as your family doctor will be able to obtain the NHS number from a different source.
