New Patients

Register as a New Patient

If you permanently live within our boundary area you may register with the practice. Click here to use our postcode checker tool to see if live within our boundary.

Registration forms are available to download via the links below or you may collect them from the surgery. Forms must be filled out in full and handed back to the surgery.

Once the registration process is complete we ask that patients over the age of five attend a welcome health check appointment with a health care assistant. This appointment lasts approximately ten to twenty minutes and is designed to enable us to collect health data and help to familiarise new patients with the practice. Reception staff can arrange this appointment for new patients.

Please note that it may take up to one month for us to receive your medical record from your previous practice.

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.
