Once the forms are completed and submitted please visit the surgery within seven working days.

Once the form has been received and actioned, you will be given an appointment with our Healthcare Assistant (HCA) to finalise your registration

 

Consultation with the Healthcare Assistant

Before a patient is accepted he/she must attend a consultation with our Healthcare Assistant; this is very helpful in providing us with brief information about your medical history. Afterwards you will then have a simple examination carried out by our Practice Nurse. This process will allow you to get to know our Practice and enable you to decide whether you wish to join our Practice.

Prior to booking a new registration appointment please bring in the following current documents:

  • One recent utility bill (which may include the current year’s council tax, electricity, water or gas)
  • Or a letter from your landlord or Housing Department to confirm your residency
  • If you were previously registered with another GP and are on repeat medication, please also bring the back-page of your prescription

Failure to provide documentation may result in the refusal of your registration

You can only see the doctor once this registration process has been completed

When you are registered with the Practice you are free to see any of our GPs. Download our Registration Leaflet for more information.

 

Named Accountable GP

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.

 

Further Information

Guide to GP Services The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

 

Temporary Residents

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can register to receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice as a temporary resident.

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 and complete the necessary registration forms. 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.
