Register as New Patient
We believe that good primary medical care depends on the doctors knowing the whole family. We would therefore, where possible prefer to register all members of a household at the time of initial registration.
In order to get registered with our practice you will need to:
Complete The Registration Forms
To register, please click the below two links (New patient questionnaire & New patient registration form (GMS1), complete the forms and submit for registration. Submitted registrations will be sent directly to our team.
You will also need to provide a proof of ID and a proof of address.
Our reception staff will assist you with the registration process if you have any questions.
Please note - If your home address falls outside of our practice's catchment area, your registration will be rejected.
Provide Proof of ID and Address
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.
Immunisation record - such as the red book - if you are registering a child with our practice.
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.
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.
