New Patients

Register as a New Patient

If you live in our practice catchment area, you will be able to register with the practice. You will need to complete a new patient questionnaire as well as one of our practice registration forms above. Please be advised we may contact you to verify ID.

Once you have been accepted as a patient, you may be notified by text message (if you have consented to receiving SMS messages) also your medical records will be transferred to the practice. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice. Please use the questionnaire to inform us of any regular medication you take as once you are registered, you may need a new patient appointment. There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case, simply choose another GP practice to register with in your local area.

If you require additional support such as an interpreter, please inform reception staff who can arrange this for you.

Please be aware your registration request can take several days to process.

Temporary Registrations

You will need to complete the temporary registration form which is available HERE.

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 as "immediate and necessary" care. After 14 days, you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can register as a temporary resident if you plan to live near a Village Health Group branch for up to 3 months.

Non-English Speakers

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.

For this particular issue, we might suggest the clinician or reception member guide you to the room instead of using the call screens.
