New Patient Registration

In order to register with the practice you should collect and complete a registration form and questionnaire. 

You must also bring 2 forms of I.D. – one must be photographic and one must have proof of address e.g. utility bills, telephone bills or bank statements dated within the last 3 months.   You will then be asked to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a New Patient Consultation.

You will be able to request an appointment with your preferred GP, if available, but you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP.

It is important that we meet you as soon as possible to discuss your medical history and medication, and assess your health needs. Please remember it may take several weeks for your case notes to be transferred from your previous doctor.

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.

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.
