New Patients Welcomed!
To register with the practice you must be living within our practice boundary and should be staying in the UK for at least 3 months.
To apply for registration please attend in person at the site of your choice.
Once you have completed the registration form, a new patient registration appointment will be made for you with one of our practice nurses/HCA.
You will also be given a new patient health questionnaire to be completed and handed into the nurse at your appointment
At the time of registration, you will receive an invitation to attend for a new patient check which involves a general health assessment performed by a member of our nursing team. We encourage all patients to attend for this assessment as it provides an overview of your medical needs and will be used by the surgery until your medical records are received.
If you are taking regular medication please bring a printed list from your previous surgery to this assessment so that delays in you receiving ongoing medication are minimised.

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.
