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.

Temporary Registration

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.
