New Patient Registration

Please complete the online registration form or inquire at reception. The practice will then process your registration, which normally takes between 5-7 working days. We are not able to register patients without this form. If you prefer, you can collect a paper version of our Registration Form from Reception. Please note that the form requires two forms of identification and in order to process the form we require you to attend the surgery in person, to verify your ID.

The ID required, needs to be one form of photographic identification (e.g. Passport/Driving License) and one form of proof of address (e.g. Bank statement/Utility Bill).

Please note that acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor and there are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example, you may live too far away or outside of the practice area. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

Unfortunately, we are not able to take on any new patients, currently, that live outside of the practice area - please see the post code checker below.

Temporary Registration

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.

Named GP

All Patients registered with the surgery will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the surgery. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
