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 can be emailed by request to the surgery.
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
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 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.
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.
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.
