Join the Practice

Register as a New Patient

When you register with the Practice we ask all patients to fill in a health questionnaire along with a registration form (GMS1), links below. We will need details of your previous practice and your NHS number.
 
The health questionnaire gives us a brief picture of your current health and future health needs. PLEASE tell us if you are on any monitoring programmes eg Warfarin.
 
If you take regular medications, you will need to have an appointment with the GP to set up your regular repeat medications.  Please ensure you have enough medication to last so that you don't run short.
 
It can take at least 6 weeks for paper notes to come from your previous surgery and the questionnaire helps us whilst we wait for your notes.
 
Please register your newborn baby quickly - you will need to bring in the paperwork given to you by the hospital.  Fill in the GMS1 form (see below) and this form here new-baby-registration

Temporary 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.
