Register as a New Patient
We welcome requests for registrations from patients living within our Practice Boundary (approximately 6.5 miles from the Surgery).
If you wish to register at the practice please complete the relevant questionnaire and registration forms below or alternatively these forms can be obtained from reception. Please note these forms must be completed in full in order to avoid a delay in your registration.
When you are registered you will be assigned to a specific doctor who will then be known as your 'registered GP'. This is to ensure continuity of care. However you have the choice to see any of the doctors in the surgery.
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.

Disabled Patient Facilities
Most patient facilities are located on the ground floor but we now have four clinic rooms on the first floor of the new building. We try to ensure appropriate access to our services whatever a person's disability. A wheelchair is available for use on the premises by patients who have difficulty walking and there is a lift for access to the first floor rooms. If you require an assistance accessing the building please ask a member of staff.
