Provide Proof of ID and Address
If you're using a paper registration form, please return your completed and signed registration forms when the surgery is less busy - ideally between 11:00-12:00 or in the afternoon so that our staff can fully answer any questions you may have, ensure your registration forms are completed correctly and check that your documentation is valid. We ask for:
Proof of address: a utility bill, council tax, bank or credit card statement.
Proof of identity: a passport, full driving licence, or a birth certificate. NHS card if you have one - this may help expedite the process of registering with our practice.

Please note - you will need to email your proof of address and proof of ID to firstname.lastname@example.org - Failure to do so may delay your registration.
Attend a New Patient Health Check
You will need to attend an initial health check appointment with our health care assistant once you have returned the completed forms to us.
Our health care assistant will ask you about your medical history and carry out an examination for height, weight, blood pressure.
Please note - You will need the have a completed new patient health check before seeing a GP.
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.
