If you live in our practice catchment area you can join our list. To register please visit the surgery with the following information:
- GPR Registration Form: To be completed in full and signed. We request proof of identity for all new patients registering. The GPR Registration form can be downloaded here, or is available from reception.
- Two forms of identification: One being photo identification and the other a utility bill or similar to confirm residence.
Please note that patients will be registered to the practice not a specific GP.
Health Questionnaire and New Patient Check
You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and all patients will be offered a new patient check with the practice nurse, allowing us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to your new GP.
If you are on repeat medication, you must see the doctor first before a prescription can be issued.
Changes to Personal Details
If you move house, please let us know. If the move is still within our practice catchment area we would be happy to continue to provide your care. Please also inform the practice if you change your telephone number, whether it is a landline number or your mobile number. Some hospital departments use telephone numbers to contact patients rather than letters.
Period of Non-Registration with a GP Practice
Where a patient is not registered with a GP practice for any reason, the period of non-registration may invalidate specific policies e.g. a travel insurance policy:
Some companies ask that you are:
- A permanent resident of the United Kingdom
- Registered with a Medical Practitioner in the United Kingdom
- Travelling from and returning to the United Kingdom
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 also register for online services to order repeat prescriptions and book certain appointments online. See our Patient Services page for further information.
There are laid down guidelines for patients from overseas which vary depending on the country of origin. Additional / Other documentation may be required in these circumstances - the Practice Manager or Reception Staff can advise.
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.
