New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete a registration form which is available from our reception desk. When you register you will be offered the opportunity to receive a health check.

As part of the normal registration process you will be registered as a patient of the practice not with a particular doctor. You do however have the opportunity to state a preference to receive services from a specific practitioner. Where this request is made we will endeavour to comply with your request. However, we do withhold the right to refuse your request if we have reasonable grounds to do so.

Are you a Military Veteran?

  • Have you previously served in the military?
  • Are you a family member of military personnel or a military veteran?

In conjunction with the pledge from the UK government, we are aiming to support military veterans with priority NHS care.

All veterans are entitled to priority NHS care for any condition, as long as it is related to their service.

A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day in the regular or reservist forces.

If this applies to you, please inform reception.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
