Patients living within the practice area are welcome to register and our reception staff will be happy to assist. Remember to bring proof of residency and proof of current/repeat medication where appropriate.
You will need to complete a registration form 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 are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team within the first four weeks.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide here.
If you would like to nominate a family member or friend to share/discuss your medical information on your behalf – inform a member of the reception staff – you will be asked to complete a form for this request which will be kept on file.
If required, please arrange for an interpreter/friend to attend your new patient registration appointment with you.
If you are unable to attend your new patient registration appointment, please give the practice 24 hours’ notice where practicable. If the practice has not been notified and you do not attend for your appointment no further appointments will be given.
New Patient Questionnaire
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.
