New Patient Registration


You are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.

As a practice, we have a large boundary and will accept most registrations. However, some areas are outside of our visiting boundary, therefore you may not be able to access home visits from either ourselves or community services.

For further information about registering, please contact our reception team.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. If we are unable to register you we will always provide you with a reason in writing.

If you are already registered with us and move out of the area, we may still be able to provide you with medical services. Please complete a change of contact details form or contact reception.

Temporary Services

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.

All Patients registered with the practice will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the practice. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
