To register as a patient you will need to call in during reception opening hours to complete documentation.
We are happy to register you as a patient at the surgery provided that you live within our practice area. If in doubt as to whether you live within our area please contact reception who should be able to help.
You can only be registered as a patient at one GP Surgery so if you register with us you will be de-registered from your current surgery and your previous medical notes will be passed to us.
Please come to reception and ask for an application form. It would assist us if you are able to bring photographic identification, your Medical Card with you or alternatively your NHS number (you can get this from your current GP practice).
You will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire, please bring along a medical summary and repeat prescription slip from your previous surgery and any recent letters from specialists if you need a referral to local services.
Please be aware that the registration process could take up to 3 working days to complete for routine registrations.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Online registration is not currently available. Patients wishing to register will need to call at reception to complete the necessary forms and collect a sample bottle in preparation for a New Patient Medical, which our reception staff will arrange with one of our practice nurses.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. 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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
