Register as New Patient
New patients are welcome to register with the surgery providing you live within the practice boundaries, if you are unsure please ask at the reception desk.
You will be asked to complete a new patient registration form for each person wishing to join so please bring your medical card to the surgery if possible. All newly registered patients over five years of age will be asked if they would like a new Patient medical. Patients on any medication will be asked to attend for a new Patient medical. Children under five years are invited to the Child Health Surveillance Clinics.
The Practice has disabled access and amenities.
Change of Details
If you change your name, address or telephone number, please let the receptionist know. If you are moving outside the practice boundaries, we may ask you to find a doctor in your new area.
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.
