Register as New Patient
To register with the Practice, patients can either:
- Complete the Patient Registration form (GMS1) and return it to the surgery.
- Alternatively, you can pre-register by using our online forms below:
The Practice encourages patients to register with a specific doctor in the practice who will undertake to manage overall responsibility for providing continuity of care. We also encourage families to register with the same doctor to help promote family service and care.
All new patients will be offered a new patient registration appointment with the Practice Nurse
The receptionist will also offer you an additional appointment with the doctor if needed. This is only normally required if you suffer from a long term illness or require regular medication or surveillance by a hospital or medical specialty.
Check if you reside in our area by referring to the map below:
We have allocated a Named Accountable GP for all of our registered patients. New patients joining us will be advised of their Accountable GP at the point of registration. If you do not know who your named GP is, please ask a member of our reception team.
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.

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.
