Register as a New Patient
Please come into the surgery where reception staff will be able to give you all the necessary forms for registration.
The surgery is a group practice and therefore patients can see any doctor within the surgery, although if you would prefer to be registered with a certain GP you can express your preference at the time of registration.
A Practice boundary is set including villages local to the surgery. This enables patients living within this boundary the opportunity to register at this Practice.
Patients who move out of our practice boundary may be able to stay registered at the Practice. If you are moving and would like to stay registered, then please ask at reception.

Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see a Health Care Professional, 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.
