Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area shown on the map below you are welcome to register with us and 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. We also require one form of photographic ID
You will need to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Both forms are available online below.
It is necessary for all new patients wanting to register with the practice to book an appointment for a health screening examination. This is 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.
Changes to Personal Details
If you change your name, address or telephone number please provide us with full details so we may update our records. This will help us in contacting you when we need to.
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.
