New Patients

Register as a New Patient

We are currently accepting new NHS patients. It's not possible to register online, but you are welcome to print out the 2 documents below, fill them in and then bring them to the reception desk at the practice when you want to register. If you are unable to print or view these files online, you are welcome to visit the practice and our reception team would be happy to provide you with these forms.

Some patients will be invited for a health check appointment with our nurse or healthcare assistant when they register. This includes patients over the age of 40, those with long term health conditions and other specific conditions. This appointment will be made for you when you register. If you are taking any repeat medication please bring your medication or your prescription counterfoil with you to your health check appointment so that we can review the medication whilst we are waiting for your medical records to arrive at the surgery.

Do I need ID?

You do not need ID to register at the medical practice. However, you will need a form of photo ID (passport, driving license, etc.) in order to register for our online services and the NHS app. Our reception staff will be able to assist you with any questions you may have about the process.


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.
