Register as New Patient
If you live within our practice area (see map opposite) you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill along with one form of photographic ID.
Please complete the forms as fully as possible as these will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. You will also need to complete the Pre-registration form and online Medical Questionnaire for New Patients.
Please hand the signed forms in go our reception along with your proof of ID-utility bill and photographic ID such as a driving licence or passport.
Please do not send forms online
All Patients at this practice are allocated a named GP (this is your registered GP). You are still able/welcome to book appointments with the GP of your choice; however, your registered GP is still responsible for your overall care. Should you wish to know who your allocated GP is, please ask at reception.
All new patients are offered a check-up on joining the practice and patients will be given an appointment with the practice nurse. Please bring a small sample of urine in a suitable leak-proof container.
Change of Personal Details
If you change your address or surname, please notify the surgery as soon as you can so the records can be amended.
Any amendments must be in writing by either sending an email or filling in a form available in reception.
Please include your telephone number and postcode as it helps us to contact you if necessary.
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.
