New Patient Registration

Register as New Patient

We welcome new patients who live within our Practice area (see map opposite) and you are free to register with any doctor. You do not have to see the doctor you are registered with, however for continuity, it is sometimes beneficial to see the same person.

Newly registering patients will be required to complete a medical history form and make an appointment to see the doctor or nurse. You will be given a practice booklet containing all the details about the surgery and the services we provide.

Receipt of your clinical records from a previous GP can take some considerable time, and not only does this appointment allow a relationship to be made with our practice, it also allows details of your history and any current medication to be detailed. Should you require to see the doctor or nurse before your records arrive here, then we have some information available.

Please complete and submit a separate application for each person being registered.




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.
