To register as a patient you will need to complete a new patient registration form, these are available in different formats (Website Form, Online Consult Form or contact reception for a paper form which can be collected).
During the Covid-19 Pandemic all patient registrations are completed online
To ensure the registration process is completed smoothly and efficiently
- Please provide your NHS number- this helps identify you.
- The name and address of your last GP - this helps locate your Medical Records
- Any child health records you hold for children under 5 years of age.
- If you have recently come from abroad – the date you arrived in the UK and any previous addresses or previous GP details
- Please complete the New Patient Registration Form in full
- Remember to include your mobile number and email address as we send letters and appointment invites/ reminders via to mobile numbers or email addresses
At the time of registration you have the right to express a preference for the GP who you wish to be registered with. However, we are a group practice and you will be advised to see any available GP when requesting a consultation.
Please contact reception for further information.
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.
