New Patients

Register as New Patient

To register a new patient you will need to live within our practice boundary.

Once you have completed BOTH of the forms below you will be invited to see a member of the practice team for registration health check which forms part of the Practice Registration process.

You must also bring photo ID into the surgery within 7 days after completion of the form.

Notes can take a long time to reach us from your previous doctor so this gives us a chance to make sure we know any problems you may have and for you to get to know the surgery. We now need to have your NHS Number at Registration if you do not have this then you will be able to obtain it from your previous GP. Please bring any evidence of medication you are on with you.

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Disabled Patient Facilities

There is a designated parking space for disabled patients (which we would ask able-bodied patients not to use or block). The main entrance to the surgery and most consulting rooms are wheelchair accessible as is the nurse’s room and toilet facilities.
