How do I register as a new patient?
If you wish to register at our practice, please pick up a new patient registration pack which is available at reception. This pack will list all the required documentation for registration.
On registration you will be asked to make an appointment for a health check with a member of the nursing staff. Please inform the receptionist if you are taking any regular medication as you will also be required to see a doctor.
Guide to GP Services
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.
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.
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.
