New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you live in our catchment area (see below) and wish to register at this practice, you will need to collect a registration form from the health centre. Please return the completed form to reception and book a 10 minute new patient appointment.  As part of this process, you will be asked to provide a urine sample.

To register online, please complete the registration form fully (INCLUDING YOUR NHS NUMBER) and submit this electronically.  If you do not know your NHS Number, please ask your current GP practice.

When ordering repeat medication from us for the first time, it is essential that you provide us with a repeat medication slip from your current practice.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
