New Patients

Register as New Patient

To register at the practice you will be required to complete the necessary registration paperwork provided by the practice. These forms can be completed online below.

It is practice policy to request a form of identification ie passport, driving licence, utility bill etc, when registering.

For detailed maps of our catchment area and location please click on the image opposite.

All registered patients have to be allocated a named GP who will have overall responsibility for their care and support. Where possible they have been informed by repeat prescription or when attending the surgery. Where this has not been possible we have made your Usual GP your Named Accountable GP. You will still be able to see any GP or Nurse of your choice.

If you are unsure and would like to know the name of your accountable GP, please ask at reception.

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 need to register as a permanent patient if you wish to continue to use the services of the 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.
