New Patients

Register as a New Patient

Please check if you live within our Practice boundaries using the post code checker.

For each patient in the household you will need to complete a New Patient Questionnaire AND a pre-registration form.  All patients over the age of 16 should use the Adult version of the New Patient Questionnaire, otherwise the child version for under 16's.  Please collect the forms from the surgery.

If you have your own blood pressure machine or have taken it recently, please send in your BP reading if possible, for your records (there is a space on the New Patient Questionnaire to do this)

Once registered with the practice you will be assigned a named accountable GP but you are still free to book appointments with any GP as we do not run personal lists

It is practice policy that where a child is registered at the practice at least one parent is present at the child’s registration and also registers with the practice.

If move outside the practice area, you will need to find a new GP practice.  You can find information on www.nhs.uk or your local library.

Practice Area

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 immediately necessary or 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.
