New Patients

Register as a New Patient

We can only accept new patients who live in our parctice area.

You are required to complete a registration form and questionnaire both these can be picked up from reception or completed online below, if you have your NHS number please include this on your registration form as it can speed up getting your medical records. Please note that reception gets very busy in the morning and it is best to attend after 14:00 to register as it will be quieter.

At registration all those over 5 years old will be asked to book a new registration check, this will help us to identify any current problems and give new patients an opportunity to ask relevant questions. When you attend for this appointment you will be asked to bring along a sample of urine.

We hope to register families together if you are registering and have any family i.e. children or young adults that have not registered please mention this to the healthcare professionals that carry our your new patients health check.

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.
