Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice boundary you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
Please see the map
If you move outside of the boundary, we are happy to keep you registered with us if you remain living within the outer boundary. If you move outside of this, we would recommend that you register with another GP surgery.
Please complete and return a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire. Online versions can be found below.
These forms provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Sometimes it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.
When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
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.
