Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area you may register with the surgery by registering online using this link https://gp-registration.nhs.uk/J83018.
A New Patient Questionnaire will be sent by post for you to complete. Click on the map opposite for Practice area details.
Alternatively, speak to a receptionist in the surgery who will assist you through the registration process.
If you have relatives or friends staying with you who become ill do not hesitate to contact us. They will be treated free of charge, as temporarily registered patients, if they meet the conditions for NHS treatment.
Registering with No Fixed Address
If you have no current fixed address, please fill out the registration form found below or collect from the surgery. You will need to ensure your phone number is up to date and state in the address section you have no fixed address.
If this is the case, the surgery address will be registered in your record by default, meaning any hospital/appointment letters will come to us. We will then contact you by phone to inform you that your letter is here. If you do not have a phone, you can provide us with the name, address and phone number of a friend or family member who you are happy to speak on your behalf.
The Practice language is English and this is spoken by all our doctors and staff. A translation and interpretation service is available (by arrangement) for any other languages.
Certain medical services are not available under NHS. For these services a charge is made, usually payable by the individual or organisation requesting the work be undertaken.
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 surgery 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 surgery.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local surgery you wish to use. Surgeries 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 surgery 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.
