How to register

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.

You can register by coming into the surgery with Official Photographic I.D’ AND ‘Up to date Address proof’ (i.e; Utility bill, Bank statement) and completing a form available from reception. We will make a note on your records if you prefer to see a particular doctor or nurse. Please advise us if you have a mobile phone number as we are increasingly using a texting system to contact patients.

Conversely, you must advise us if you move, particularly if your new address is outside our catchment area.

You can register by attending the surgery for the necessary registration paperwork.

You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.

Temporary patients

If you are not registered with a GP you will be unable to see one unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

If you are not registered with a GP but need treatment at a GP Surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form.

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.
