New Patients

Register as a New Patient

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area shown on the map opposite,

The black line shows the boundary and the red line shows our Outer Boundary - this means that patients who are currently registered with us and move into the outer boundary area may remain registered with us if they choose. However we do not accept new patients in the Outer Boundary area.

Please click on the map opposite for a larger interactive version.

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms that are available on reception at both surgeries. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor. Your registration will be complete when you have had a new patient health check.

Pre-registration with the practice

If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.

Please note: You will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP and are free to see any available GP when booking appointments.

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.
