New Patients

Register as a New Patient

Anyone wishing to register with the practice should complete a Registration form. Please also complete New Patient Questionnaire which will enable us to collect all  relevant information.  When completing the form you may indicate your preferred doctor but this does not guarantee that you will always see the same doctor. You are registered with the practice team as a whole. We recommend that you should attend your new patient health check as a part of your registration.    

We would also encourage you to register with 'Patient Access' which is our on line service.  This will enable you to book appointments and order your medication. 50% of our appointments are available to book in this way which will save time and effort contacting the surgery by telephone.  Please see the receptionist for further information and application forms or complete them online below.

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.

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.
