New Patient Registration
If you fall within our catchment area (see map opposite) and would like to register at our surgery then you will need to complete a new patient questionnaire and have a “registration appointment” with the practice nurse. This will give us some background information, until your records arrive, on past medical problems and lifestyle. You may prefer to discuss parts of the questionnaire personally with the nurse. If you are on regular medication you will need an appointment with a doctor to ensure that you will be able to request further prescriptions.
If you are out of our area you CANNOT register as a patient at the Surgery.
Please note that when registering, you can only do this in person (this must be the person that wishes to register) as we cannot accept registrations over the telephone, by email or by post.
To download the necessary forms for registration please click on the links below. Once completed please bring them in to the surgery. We accept registrations between 10:00 and 18:30 Monday - Friday.
Please ensure you print out both forms and bring them with you to the surgery when registering. You will need to bring ID or we will not be able to complete your registration.
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.
