New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you wish to register as a patient you will need to complete the registration form which is available at the Reception Desk or we can send a copy by email upon request. Please send your request to rowden.surgery@nhs.net.

We would request you bring ID with you although this is not mandatory. If you have a preference to be registered with a particular Doctor we will try to comply but it may not always be possible to accommodate all requests.

We ask newly registered patients to complete a health questionnaire, as it may be some time before your medical records are received.

If you require repeat medication or have a problem that requires medical attention, please make an appointment to see your doctor at the time of registering.

Temporary Patient Registrations

You can register temporarily with a GP surgery while away from home for work, study or on holiday. You'll remain registered with your permanent GP surgery.

If you are not registered with a GP you will be unable to see one unless you have an emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

If you are not registered with a GP but need emergency treatment at a GP Surgery, you will need to complete a temporary registration form.

If you have run out of medication whilst on holiday, you can contact your regular GP practice as they can send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy local to where you are staying.

You can be registered as a temporary patient from 14 days 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 our 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.
