New Patient Registration

We welcome new patients living within our practice area. We may ask you to make an appointment to see a Practice Nurse when you first register with us. This gives us an opportunity to assess your health until your medical records arrive and to let you know about the services we offer.

In order to register you must initially show some proof of identity, this is usually your passport, driving licence or medical card as well as some proof of your address. If you are registering a child under the age of 16 years you must also bring their immunisation records. A member of our reception team will then ask you some preliminary questions to determine whether you require an initial registration appointment.

You will always be asked to complete a few registration papers. If you need help to complete these forms our reception team will assist you.

To speed up this process you can download your own forms below. You will need to complete a set of form for each person wishing to register.

Temporary Registration

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 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.
