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:

When you come to the practice to register or to return your form, you will need all your details as well as your previous address. Please bring a form of photographic ID. This could be a passport, driving licence etc. If you do not have any of these, please bring either an entitlement to treatment NHS card (for immigrants) or 2 utility bills holding your name and address.

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.

In the first instance during normal working hours, you should contact your own GP. This is the same if you need any medication, as prescriptions can be sent electronically to a chemist in the area, as long as your registered practice is in England.

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.
