New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please bring in your medical card and those of any other family members who wish to register with our practice. If misplaced you will need to fill out an application form for each applicant.

You will need to provide proof of your ID and current residence  ( post code, the name and address of your previous GP and your NHS number) .

You will also need to book an appointment to see our practice nurse for a new patient medical check. Children under five years of age do not need to have a medical but parents will be asked for details of all immunisation dates. This is part of our regular procedure before registering with the practice.

Please bear in mind that you will be registered with the practice rather than an individual GP. 

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

Young People Are Welcome       

If you’re under 16, you have no right to choose your own GP and must be registered by a parent. If you’re aged 16 and over, you can choose your own GP.

You can find  more information about GPs  on Advice guide.

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 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.
