Join The Practice
If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us please complete our registration forms that are available online below or from our reception.
We will need your NHS number and you will need to provide us with proof of ID (passport/photo driving license), proof of address (utility bill/rent book, ideally dated within the last 3 months) and if you are from overseas, we will need proof that you intend to settle in the UK (such as a residence permit which is in date).
Full details of the accepted documentation can be obtained from our reception.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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.
