Register with us as a New Patient

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please check the map below to see if your address falls within our catchment area.

It's simple to register with the practice, simply fill out our secure online form and attach copies of your proof of address and identity.

Alternatively, please bring along your medical card to the surgery if you have one. Or, if not, we have a simple form for you to fill in available at reception. You will be asked to provide proof of address (tenancy agreement, council tax bill, utility bill or bank statement) your NHS number and passport or photo ID. These documents are not a mandatory requirement and you will not be refused registration if you cannot produce them.

We are able to provide you with only urgent or emergency medical services until you have joined the practice.

We offer and encourage all patients to have three yearly health checks with the practice nurse and the receptionist will advise you of the arrangements for making an appointment with one of the practice nurses. When seeing the doctor or nurse for the first time it would be helpful to bring a list of all medication and serious illnesses including operations you may have had.

The reception staff will ask you to complete a new patient information sheet which will assist with this information required. Once the registration form and checkup are done we can register you with NHS England to obtain your medical notes from your previous GP and offer you the full range of NHS Health Services.

Temporary Residents

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 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.
