Register with us as a New Patient
Changes to registration during Covid-19 Pandemic
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice. To register you will need to complete our online regsitration form
You may also need to email the practice with a picture of your photo identification and proof of address such as bank statement, recent utility bill showing your name and current address.
When normal service resumes, you will be asked to bring the hard copies into the practice.
Registering with the Practice
We welcome any new patient that lives within the boundaries of the practice area please log onto NHS Choices and put in your postcode to check.
You can apply to register with us by completing one of the registration forms available at reception or online (see link below)
We never discriminate on the grounds of age, sex, medical condition, race, disability or social class, and if we are unable to register you we will always provide you with a reason either verbally or in writing.
If you are already registered with us and move out of the area, we may still be able to provide you with medical services but not home visits if you become ill. Contact reception for more details.
Once you have completed this form please come to the surgery with proof of address and photo ID.
Whilst you are registered with the practice, every patient has a named GP who is responsible for overseeing their clinical care, they are known as your 'Usual GP'. If you are unsure who your 'Usual GP' is please ask.
If you are visiting relatives in the area or here for only a short holiday or period of time, and need to see a doctor, please contact reception on 01253 951717. You will then be asked to complete the relevant form.
Once you have completed the form you can receive emergency treatment from the practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient. The appts will be offered on the same basis as our registered patients so you may not get seen straight away. If you require an urgent on the day appt please see our front page for same day centres and extended access.
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 the practice.
