New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you live in our Practice area you are most welcome to register with us. In order to do this, you need to obtain registration forms and new patient questionnaire form for each member of your family from the surgery or complete online versions below.

When you return these to the surgery we will make a new registration appointment for all the adults and for any children that are on repeat medication or have ongoing health issues.

The new registration consultation involves simple medical tests such as checking of blood pressure and an analysis of a urine sample as well as general information about diet and exercise. If you are on any repeat medication then these will also be sorted out at this time. This is also your opportunity to share your health beliefs and to make any inquiries to your doctor.

At the same time as registering you can apply of the online services we provide, you are able to access the following online, repeat prescription ordering, online appointment booking, access to limited medical records including blood test results.

When patients register at the practice all adults will be required to produce photographic identification (e.g. a passport or a driving licence) and ideally documentation to confirm you permanent place of residence.

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.
