New Patient Registration

If you would like to join our practice one of our reception staff will be happy to assist you.

The receptionist will ask for your address and confirm whether it is within the practice boundaries

You will be asked to complete a registration form, which will include the name and address of your last GP and a health questionnaire. You will need to show a letter confirming your name and address as well a form of photographic evidence. These forms can be completed online by visiting the above “Registering Online” page (please note that the GMS1 form will need to be signed when you come in to the surgery).

Once the documents are completed and accepted, you will be registered with the Practice. The receptionist will make an appointment for a New Patient Medical with one of our nurse.

Temporary Registration

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.
