To register you Registration Form in the surgery AND New Patient Questionnaire, if you do not do this we will not register you as a patient
You will also need to provide reception with a form of ID.
Click here for information about our Practice area, if you do not fit within this area we will not register you.
Once you have registered, your records from your previous surgery will be sent for, but it can take several months to get these. Therefore, it is best to register as soon as you can. When you attend here for the first time, it is helpful to bring your repeat prescription slip with you if you are on regular medication.
You can see whichever doctor you want, but we encourage you to see the same doctor whenever possible, as you will get better continuity of care. When your doctor is on holiday, you can see another one if your problem really cannot wait.
As a new patient you can request an appointment for a new patient check if you feel it would be appropriate.
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.
