New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.

There may be a waiting list for new patients who already have a GP in the area as we need to give priority to those who do not have local GP services.

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.

Online pre-registration forms can be found below.

All new patients aged 12 and over are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information

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. If you need treatment for more than 14 days, you will need to register with the GP surgery as a temprary or permanent patients.

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.

Many patients find they need to see an emergency doctor when away from home for medications - in these cases it is always worthwhile contacting your own GP practice first as electronic prescribing services (EPS) allows you to nominate a pharmacy of choice anywhere in England.

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.

Disabled Patient Facilities

The surgery has been designed to be easily accessible and user friendly for our disabled and wheelchair-bound patients. There are designated parking spaces in the car park and disabled toilet facilities are located adjacent to the waiting room and on the ground floor. If you experience any problems please speak to one of our receptionists who will be pleased to assist you. Wheelchairs are available at the ground floor reception for patients who need help accessing the building.
