New Patients

Register as New Patient

New registrations are only accepted from patients living within our designated practice boundary area. To register, please complete the following steps: 

 

1. Check that you are within our practice boundary by clicking on our postcode checker. If yes, 

 

2.  Complete the New Patient Registration Form

 

3. Complete the New Patient Questionnaire.

 

Please note that both of these forms must be completed and submitted before your registration can be processed. 

 

4. When we have received both forms, we will call you to confirm that your registration is being processed. We will then send you a text requesting a photo of a personal identity document (driving licence or passport). Once you send this to us, we will finalise your registration. 

 

Important notice: The New Patient Questionnaire for those aged 12 & under is not yet available, but it will be within the next few days. Please continue to check this page if you are looking to register under 12s. 

 

Forms and information about the registration process can also be obtained from a member of our patient services team. Call our reception desk to get in touch.

Please note that you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP.

 

 

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.
