New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us. Our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address, so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill and one form of photographic ID.

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire, which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.

We offer a new patient health check with one of our nurses or health care assistants. Once you are registered with us, please contact the surgery to speak to a member of the reception team, who will be more than happy to arrange an appropriate appointment for you

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.

Temporary Registration
If you are ill whilst 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.
