New Patients

Register as a New Patient

We welcome any new patients who reside within our practice area. If you move out of the area, we regret that you must register with another practice as soon as possible.  You can register by presenting your medical card or completing a GMS1 form and health questionnaire available from reception.Alternatively, if you wish to register online, please click on the link below to open the registration form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the “Submit” button. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to provide information about your current health. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. You will need to visit the surgery to complete the registration process.  When you come to the surgery please bring with you proof of your address (eg utility bill) and you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct (practice to confirm this please).

Practice Area

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.
