Register as New Patient
To join the practice you must reside within the practice area (see map opposite).
You will need to complete a registration form and health questionnaire. Online pre-registration versions of these forms are available below.
You will also need to provide some form of photographic identification and proof of address - please speak to reception about this.
Change of Personal Details
If you change your name, address or telephone number, please let us know.
If you move out of the area please inform us as soon as possible so that we can forward your records to your new doctor.
All patients (including children) have been allocated a named, accountable GP. The named accountable GP’s role will be to take responsibility for the co-ordination of care and ensure that care is delivered to each of their patients where required and based on their clinical judgement.
If a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they wish to be assigned, the practice will make reasonable effort to accommodate this request.
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.
