Register as a New Patient

You can register as a patient at the surgery if you live within the area shown on the map opposite.

To register as a new patient with this practice complete our online form here.

If you are made aware you are “out of the area” this means you no longer fall into the catchment area and will need to find a new GP practice.

Please check that you are within the area and verify with the surgery.

You will then need to visit the surgery where you will be asked to provide proof of address, photo ID and signature. If you are on repeat medication, you may be asked to book an appointment with a doctor to complete your registration.

Please note that children aged 16 and under do not need to complete the registration form. An adult member of the family can register them by providing the required information and signing the form on their behalf.

Change of Details

It is important that you inform us of any changes in your name and address or phone number so that we can contact you when required.

If you move outside the practice area you may be asked to find another practice, you are still able to receive treatment up to 28 days after being deregistered.

Temporary 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.

Non English Speakers

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.

New or existing patients from outside our catchment area are not eligible for home visits and may be deregistered and advised to register with another GP locally if they are unable to attend the appointments on time or if their health needs change such that home visits are required.
