Registration forms for new patients are available from reception. Once these have been completed and returned, your application will be processed in the surgery. The information is electronically relayed to the NHS authority for new registrations and your records requested from your previous GP. If you have a white medical card with your previous GP details this is helpful in providing details needed to process your records. If you cannot find this then an NHS number will also be helpful.
A patient is registered with the practice, not an individual doctor. We appreciate that some prefer to see a specific doctor for continuity and the practice is happy to accommodate this with the preferred doctor; it will not always be possible however, particularly if your need is urgent or the doctor is away from the practice. .
In line with advice from the NHS ruling body we now ask for proof of identity and residence within our practice area at the point of registration - the receptionist will be able to advise you further if this is problematic.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration - please just ring reception for further information.
Summary care records: Leaflet for new patients SCR PILS
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.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. 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 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.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about yourself across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
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.

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.
