New Patient Registration
We are more than happy to welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
You will automatically be allocated a specific GP but you will maintain the right to request a GP of your choice.
Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
Online ‘Pre-Registration’ With The Practice
- If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. Please print the form, filling out all of the required details before bringing it into the surgery. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
- When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable amount of time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the #nhsapp, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the #nhsapp to get health advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP health record and more. For more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp
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.
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.
Please note that we do not issue repeat prescriptions for temporary patients. Please contact your own practice.
Due to COVID-19, we are currently offering telephone consultations at first instance. As this is the same in many practices, please contact your own practice in the first instance if you are staying in the local area.
