Register as a New Patient
We welcome all new patients and their families. Please complete a registration form including the medical questionnaire as it can take some time for us to receive your medical records and this form has been designed to ensure we meet your needs. Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
If you require information in large print, audio or an easy read form please contact the Practice and our Patient Services Team will be happy to help.
If you are prescribed medications on a repeat basis, please ensure your have ordered sufficient supply of medicines before leaving your current Practice. When you register with us, please bring with you the repeat medication request slip (the right hand side of the prescription) so that we can record accurate details your regular repeat medications on your new medical record as soon as possible.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Patients Leaving The UK For More Than 3 Months
Patients who have left the UK, or who are intending to leave the UK for more than 3 months, are not normally allowed to continue to be registered with us. Such patients are welcome to re-register with the Practice if they subsequently return to reside in our catchment area.
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.
