We welcome new patients joining the practice. When you register, you will be asked to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire and you will be registered with the GP who is 'taking on' in that month. Forms are available to download from the above "Registering Online" tab.
You will be given the name of your own GP when you register so that you can see them regularly, however you may ask to see another GP or may be offered another GP for urgent appointments or 'same day team' appointments.
To fully register with the practice you need to live within approximately a 10 mile radius of the surgery.
There is an option if you live further away but wish to register with this practice and this is called 'an out of area registration'. This means you can register with us and attend here for appointments, however we are unable to carry out home visits. Please read this leaflet for more information OOAR V1 Jan 15 .pdf
Please either call-in at the surgery or telephone us on 01271 323443 if you wish further clarification on registering.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
To register, please print off the registration form, complete, sign and bring into the surgery. You will need to provide your NHS number for the registration form. Your NHS number will be on any letter or document you have received from the NHS, such as prescriptions, test results, and appointment letters. Or you can contact your GP practice and ask them to look it up for you.
Alternatively come in to the surgery and collect a registration form for completion and signature.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire, this is because it can take some time for us to receive your medical records.
You can print off a copy of the questionnaire from here, complete it and bring it to the surgery if you wish or we will give you one when you first attend the surgery.
New Patient Questionnaire
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
