If you live within our practice area (please check first using the Postcode Checker on our Practice Boundary Map page) you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so it would help if you could provide proof by way of a recent utility bill.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1, and bring a form of ID with you) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. You may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice. We will also ask you to consent to share your medical record so that other health professionals can be fully informed when consulting with you. This includes your Summary Care Record with Additional Information. Please see below link.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking. If you are on any repeat medication, you will need to make an appointment with a Doctor so they can reissue your medication appropriately.
You may also like to complete a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Patients from Abroad
The Practice doctors have a duty to provide free of charge treatment which they consider to be "immediately necessary" or "emergency treatment" to any person within the practice area, regardless of whether that patient is an overseas visitor or registered with the practice.
If treatment is provided free of charge, prescription charges are applicable under the usual rules.
An appointment for an overseas visitor to see a doctor will be made on the understanding that a charge may be payable.
Secondary Care /Hospital Treatment
Patients from overseas who are referred by a doctor to a secondary care provider are liable to be charged by the secondary care provider irrespective of whether the patient has been given free treatment under the NHS.
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.

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 and 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.
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.
