Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. An online registration form and health questionnaire are available on line via the links below. PLEASE COMPLETE BOTH QUESTIONNAIRES. If both are not completed, your registration will not be valid.
To complete your registration you must visit the surgery with the relevant documents required; 2 forms of ID one with photograph and one verifying your residing address.
All new patients over 5 years of age will be invited to make an appointment with the Clinical Pharmacist for a general health and medication check. This includes height, weight, blood pressure and a few general questions concerning your health, please bring a urine sample to this appointment and all current medication being used.
Change of Personal Details
If you change your name, address, post code or telephone number, please give full details to Reception. You can also email the information to email@example.com
Remember to tell us if details for other members of your family have also changed.
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.
