Register as New Patient
We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in the practice area.
You can register by bringing along your NHS medical card or completing a form available from reception.
All new patients, when registering, will be asked to complete a 'New Patient' form so that we can learn about you and your medical problems. This may result in an appointment with the GP, nurse or practice pharmacist. The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, age, social class, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
Change of Personal Details
To ensure we can provide you with the best level of care and service it is extremely important for us to have your correct and up-to-date personal details.
If you move outside the practice area, you will need to register with a local practice. Our reception staff will be able to tell you whether your new address is still within our practice area. Please inform us of any such changes at your earliest convenience.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similarly respectful way. It is your responsibility to keep your appointments, inform us of your past illnesses, medication, hospital admissions and any other relevant details.
Please note that no discrimination will be made with regard to race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance or on grounds of disability or medical condition.
If you have any hearing impairment please advise our reception staff if you require use of our hearing loop.

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.
