If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
You will need to complete a registration form and may be asked to provide some form of identification. These can be collected in person from the surgery or alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
Permanent Registration Form
All new patients are offered a health check with the practice nurse, which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. This health check also ensures that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Once you have completed the permanent registration form, please also complete the new patient questionnaire and return it with any additional medical information we may need (including copies of repeat prescriptions, recent clinical letters)
New Patient Questionnaire
If you are ill while away from home you can receive treatment from the local GP practice but you will need to register as a temporary patient. If it is regarding a longer term or ongoing problem please consult your own doctor when you get home.
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.
