Register as a New Patient
If you live within our Practice area you are welcome to register with us. Please use the map and postcode checker tool opposite to confirm.
You will need to complete a practice new patient questionnaire as well as our registration forms. Paper copies can be collected at reception, or you can use the link to register with us online.
You must be within the Practice Boundary for us to process your registration.
Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice.
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.
