Register as New Patient
To register with the Practice you will need to live in our catchment area (opposite). If you do please come to reception and collect the necessary forms or use the links below to pre-register.
You will need to attend the surgery and bring with you the following:

- Your Warfarin book (if applicable)
- Blood monitoring book (if applicable)
- A letter written by yourself explaining why you are moving Practice (only required if you are moving from another doctor in the same catchment area).
Failure to provide the above may result in a delay in you joining our patient list.
You must make a New Patient Medical appointment to which you should bring a urine sample. Bottles are at reception.
We will take care of the rest such as obtaining your notes from your previous GP.
Identification required should be one of each of the following categories:
Proof of Identity
- Valid passport
- Driving licence
- Birth certificate
- Identity card

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.
