New Patients

Register as a New Patient

If you are registering in person with the Practice we would kindly ask you to do this after 11:00 when surgeries are not being held. Please bring photographic ID (i.e. passport or driving licence) and proof of address (i.e. a current utility bill).

Online registration forms are available via the links below.

You will be asked to contact the surgery within 5 working days to confirm the registration is taking place.

All new patients are asked to attend for a registration medical which is carried out by the nurse. All medical services are available to you from the day you register.

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.

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.

Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:

Disabled Facilities

There are two parking spaces provided for disabled drivers which are clearly marked. Wheelchair access is directly in front of the entrance to the health centre. We would kindly ask patients to refrain from parking in the disabled bay if you are not disabled as this obstructs wheelchair access to the building.
