Register with us as a New Patient




Changes to registration during Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice. To register you will need to complete our online registration form.


New Patient Registration

To register, you will need to fill in a New Patient Registration Form. We will need details of your name, address and current GP to assist in the prompt transfer of your medical records.

You will be asked which surgery you wish to be registered with as part of the process.

We request that you provide photo ID and proof of your current address. These can be shown to staff at the reception desk or electronic copies sent via our New Patient Registration Form.

For practical reasons we need to ensure that people are who they say they are and check where they live, this will help ensure we match the correct patient details to the NHS central patient registry. Please ensure that you live within the practice boundary

We will not be able to offer you an appointment to see a doctor or a nurse before you have registered.


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 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.

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.

To register as a temporary patient please fill in a Temporary Registration Form.
