Register as New Patient
The practice is happy to register new patients living within our catchment area (click here to check if your postcode is within our area). If you are already a patient and are moving locally please contact your normal surgery for advice. You may still be eligible to stay with the practice.
We will need to see you in person and you must bring along photographic ID and proof of address, this is usually a uitility bill or any other official document with your address on.
You will need to complete the relevant forms which can be found below. We will then arrange an appointment for a new patient health check.
must have the completed form to enable us to register you. You will need one for each family member you wish to register.
From April 2015 we are required to provide all our patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for your care and support. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice. This doctor is chosen at random and you can find out the name of your “named GP” by contacting the surgery. Should you have a preference for your allocated GP then please contact the surgery and we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
When making an appointment you can choose to see any of the doctors at your surgery, but remember you may have to wait longer to see your doctor of choice.
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.
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.
