Register as New Patient
If possible, please call into the surgery to register with the practice. You will be given a registration form together with a short health questionnaire. We ask that adults provide photographic identification and evidence of address such as a utility bill.
Our Practice area can be seen on the map opposite.
We also offer the opportunity to attend for a new patient check with a practice nurse. This includes the recording of height, weight, blood pressure and an analysis of urine (please bring a sample in a suitable container) and the opportunity to discuss your current medication and past medical history. For patients that are too ill to attend the surgery, similar arrangements can be made to carry out a new patient check at home.
In order to maintain continuity of care and an even work load, all patients will be allocated to a GP on joining the practice. However, you may express a preference to see a particular doctor but this will depend on the circumstances at the time of application.
If you want to fill out the pre-registration form and also our health questionnaire online please use the links below:
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.
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.
