Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area you may register with the surgery by completing the Registration Form found below. 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.
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 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.
