Register as New Patient
Normally we ask patients to present to the Practice with appropriate forms of identification, one with the home address details, such as a Passport or Driving Licence and Utility Bill. However this is currently not requirement during the COVID Pandemic.
All patients registered with the practice have an allocated named GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice; please contact the practice if you are already registered and need to check who this is. If you have a preference as to your named GP, please let us know and we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
You can collect a registration pack from reception or you can print out the appropriate forms below. (During the Covid pandemic we can also post a registration pack to you).
Both the registration and data sharing form must be completed to enable us to process any registration. If you are not normally resident in the UK you must also complete the following form: Non UK Resident Form
Please read the information leaflets listed below carefully before completing the registration forms.
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.
