Register as a New Patient
We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
Please complete the registration form and health questionnaire below (also available from reception) which all patients will be required to complete. The completed forms plus proof of address and photo ID (recent utility bills, recent bank/financial statements, tenancy agreements, passport or a valid driving licence are acceptable items) are required for each adult wishing to register at our surgery. Please ensure you email us your identity documents as mentioned above on email@example.com or else your registration will be pending
Once we have received all required information, you will be registered with the practice in 5-7 working days. If we have any further queries, we will contact you. We will also call to book a New Patient Check with our Nurse.
Any new patients already receiving regular medication will need to make an appointment with one of our GPs before any future prescriptions can be issued. All medical treatment is available from the date of your completed registration. Please ensure that you have sufficient supplies of medication from your previous surgery to last you until an appointment has been arranged at this practice.
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.
