New Patient Registration
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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.

Online 'Pre-Registration' With The Practice
If you wish to pre-register fill in the online form on this page. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
You are required to provide documentary proof that you have been a resident in the UK for over 6 months and also proof of your identity & address before we are able to register you.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out 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.
New Patient Health Questionnaire
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
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.
Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:
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 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.

For all patients who are not ordinarily resident in the UK
Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice.
However, if you are not ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the
GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the
time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of
‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK.
Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are
free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges.
More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the
Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available from your GP practice.
You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice,
otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any
immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment.
The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be
shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation,
invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.
A parent/guardian should complete the form on behalf of a child under 16.
