New Patients

We are happy to accept and register new patients. This can be done in two ways:

Option 1

  • You can call into the surgery to collect a new patient pack containing the practice booklet and registration forms.

Or

Option 2

  1. Print out and complete the GMS Registration Form
  2. Print out and complete the New Patient Questionnaire Or form for under 15 year olds
  3. Bring them into the surgery where our Receptionist can check the form with you and give you a new patient pack containing relevant information.

To complete your registration with us the NHS require some form of identification and proof of your current address. The following items can be used to prove the identity of an individual for the purposes of NHS administration:

  • UK Birth Certificate
  • Current UK Driving Licence
  • Current Passport
  • Home Office ID Card (IND immigration card)
  • HM Forces ID Card
  • UK Certificate of Naturalisation

If you take regular medication please let us know at the point of registering.  If you are able to please provide us with your list of medication or a copy of your last repeats slip.  We will make an appointment for you with your doctor so that they can add your medication to your medical record.

New patients joining the practice may express a preference as to which doctor they wish to see. We will accommodate this if possible. Similarly, should you prefer to see a particular doctor/nurse in relation to any specific condition, we will try to accommodate that as well.

To register with our practice as a temporary resident

You can register temporarily with a GP where you're staying if you're ill or need medical advice while you're away from home – for example, if you're working, studying or on holiday.

You'll still remain registered with your permanent GP, but you can see your temporary GP for up to three months. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
Your temporary GP will pass details of any treatment you have to your permanent GP, who will add the information to your medical records.  You will need to complete a temporary registration form which is available from reception.

Try to have the following information with you when you see your temporary GP for the first time:

  • details of any medical conditions you have
  • details of medical conditions you've had in the past
  • the name of any medicines you're currently taking
  • details of anything you're allergic to
  • contact details for your permanent or previous GP

We look forward to providing your care
