Register as New Patient
To register with us you need to be resident within our practice area (see below).
You need to have completed form GMS1 and a health questionnaire. Both can be collected from main reception .Once you have completed these forms you will need to present in person at the surgery with proof of address and photographic identification such as a driving license or passport. We cannot accept registration forms on behalf of another patient such as spouses or children over 16 as we will need to see the person with their ID in order to verify them to meet the relevant legislation set by the government.
Once this registration process is complete we will make the necessary arrangements to ensure that your medical records are sent to us from you previous doctor.

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.

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.
