Catchment Area

If you are registered in our inner practice area and then move to our outer practice area you may remain on our list. See image download for outer practice boundary.

How to register as a new patient

Visit the surgery in person and complete an application form at reception or complete an online form below. You will need 2 forms of identification for each person, one of which should be photo ID and one proof of address (e.g. utility bill).

New patients will need to complete an initial health questionnaire following which you will be offered a preliminary health check.

Overseas Visitors

If you are an overseas visitor to the UK there may be a charge to see the doctor or nurse. For further information, please contact reception.

Updating Your Details

Please let us know if you move address, change your phone number(s) or email. You can do this in person or if you are registered for online services you can do this via the patient portal.

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 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.
