Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice catchment area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.
You can find your closest doctor here
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire (below) which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Parents are requested to bring their child’s personal health record (red book) or any record of previous immunisations.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are not registered with a GP you will be unable to see one unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.
If you are not registered with a GP but need treatment at a GP surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form.
To register as a temporary resident in England, you can find a GP near you.
The surgery will give you a Temporary services form GMS3 to complete.
You can register as a temporary resident if you plan to live near the GP surgery for up to 3 months.
After 3 months you will have to apply to register with that surgery as a permanent resident.
You can register temporarily with a GP surgery while away from home for work, study or on holiday. You'll remain registered with your permanent GP surgery.
The temporary GP surgery will pass details of any treatment you have to your permanent GP surgery. They will add the information to your medical records.
If your application to become a temporary patient is refused, you can still receive emergency treatment for up to 14 days.
