New Patients

Register as New Patient

New patients who live within our practice area may register to join the practice. You will need your NHS number which you can get from your current GP. 

You will need to complete a registration form to register as well as a brief health questionnaire. This is because it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice.

Forms are available from reception or online pre-registration versions can be completed below.

In addition, we require proof of identity and address, in order to confirm that you are resident within the practice boundary. You will need to bring in when you register:

  • utility bill
  • driving licence

In the case new babies being registered, we will require the baby's red book or hospital discharge notification. Please can you arrange to register your baby with the practice at least a week before attending for the first baby clinic.

Patient Charter

Staff at the practice are committed to a quality policy, which ensures that patients receive a standard of healthcare, which meets their requirements.

This policy is set out in the practice's patients' charter, which is attached below.

The charter also sets out the practice's expectations of patients' responsibilities.

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.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
