Register as a New Patient
Patients living within the practice area are welcome to register and our reception staff can confirm your eligibility from your postcode. To complete the registration process you will need to provide the practice with photographic proof of identity and proof of address. This can be a Passport or photo card driving licence, which will also serve as proof of address. Or a recent utility bill for proof or address.
New patients can register with the practice Tuesday - Friday after 10:00. Unfortunately we cannot accept registrations outside of these times.
Please use the link below to check if your address falls within our catchment area.
You will also need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
All new patients over 5 years old are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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.
