New Patients

Register as New Patient

We are currently open to new registrations if you live in our catchment area (click here for map).

Online Registration

If you wish to register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "submit" button to mail your form to us. Once you have done this please email the practice a copy of your Photo identification and proof of address to the following email address .

If you have come to this country from abroad, then it is necessary for you to provide photocopies of paperwork confirming your entitlement to remain in this country for more than 6 months. Original documents should also be available for us to view and photocopies can be made by the Practice.

Examples of suitable documents:

  • A current British or European Community Passport
  • A work permit
  • A valid visa (with more than 6 months left to run)
  • Home Office paperwork for asylum seekers or refugees
  • If you are a student, a letter from your college/university confirming the duration of your studies

You will be given a named doctor who will be responsible for your care. Where possible you should see or speak with this doctor for on-going issues. However, you may speak or see other doctors for more urgent/new problems.

Adults will be asked to attend a new patient check with our Health Care Assistant to collect baseline measurements and assess lifestyle risk factors.

If you take regular medication then please make an appointment, by telephone or at surgery, to discuss with your doctor before a repeat prescription is due.

Are you a carer or do you have a carer? If yes, click here to register or contact the surgery for a carers registration form.

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.
