Register as a New Patient
Please bring your medical card and photographic ID (i.e. passport or driving licence) to the surgery if possible. All newly registered patients will be asked to complete a simple questionnaire and invited to attend for a “new patient” check-up/assessment if you are on regular medication. This enables us to meet you and assess your medical needs.
Please note you can choose to attend any of the doctors in the partnership. Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. You can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor. This preference will be recorded in your medical notes. We do, however, encourage you to consult one doctor for chronic problems as this ensures continuity of care.
Please ensure you complete both the New Patient Registration and Questionnaire Online Form. ID to be handed in within 7 days following this.

Please be aware that you only need to complete this form if YOU ARE A NEW PATIENT. Existing patients information remains valid, although the website has been updated.
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.
