New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice boundary 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 along with one form of photographic ID.
You will need to complete a registration form, which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
All new patients 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.
Please note you will be joining the ‘practice list’ and will not be registering with one doctor. Although you may state your preferred doctor, you may see any of the doctors, especially in an emergency.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please ask reception for further information.
For further information about the surgery, please read our Practice Leaflet.
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 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.
