Register as a New Patient
We accept all persons living within the practice boundary (opposite). To register you will be required to complete both the Registration Form AND the Medical Questionnaire below.
You will be offered an appointment to see a nurse who will complete a new patient health check. This is important as it gives us an opportunity to assess your medical history, and to advise you of any relevant services offered at the surgery which may be of benefit to you and to provide us with information before your records come to us.
It is helpful to bring your medical card with you if you have one. You do not need to inform your previous GP. Your record will be sent to us in due course.
Where possible, can you please provide your NHS number if you know it, your previous GP practice, previous address and if you were not born in the country a date of when you entered the UK.
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.
