Register With Us
You can register as a patient with the practice either by completing your medical card and handing it in at reception or by requesting a registration pack from reception.
Alternatively you can download the registration documents by clicking on the links opposite:
When completed, please bring them in to the surgery.
We will ask you to complete a simple questionnaire. This provides us with some important information about your health and helps us with your future medical care. You will be requested to attend a new patient check. These are usually performed by the practice nurse. Please enquire at reception if you require any further information.
Change of Personal Details
Please remember to let us know if you change your address, phone number or other details. It helps if we need to contact you about your health or medication. If you are attending hospital, please also keep the hospital department informed of any changes of address.
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.
