Register as New Patient
Our lists are currently open and you may apply to register with us. We undertake not to discriminate against any application on grounds of disability or medical condition, age, appearance, race, gender, social class, religion or sexual orientation.
We may, however, refuse your application to join us if:
- You or your relatives have a history of violence or threatened violence or we believe that there is a real risk to the personal safety of practice staff or to the property of the practice.
- You have previously been removed from the practice list, for example due to an irreconcilable breakdown in your relationship with a member of the practice team.
- You are outside the practice boundary.
To complete your registration you MUST complete all parts of the registration form (s) which can be downloaded below and return to the practice. It takes about 2 weeks to process your registration.
The receptionist will give you a Practice handbook giving details of the Practice and the services we offer. This also contains the opening times of our two surgeries and details of how to book an appointment.
If you have an existing chronic disease (diabetes, asthma etc.) you will need to book an appointment with one of our nurses.
Please note: If you are on any regular medication, you will need to book an appointment with one of the GPs before we can prescribe this for you. Please bring all your regular medication to the appointment.
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.
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.
