Register as New Patient
Please be aware that we are currently experiencing a high volume of registrations and this may take some time to complete. We would therefore recommend that you order your medication from your existing GP practice in order to make sure you do not go without your medication.
Please contact our reception team on 01249 444343 or via email@example.com to request a registration form, if you request via email, please provide your full name, date of birth, postal address and your current GP surgery.
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.
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.
Existing Patients - Change of Address
Please be aware that if you are an existing patient and you move to a new postal address outside our catchment area, we are no longer able to keep you registered with our GP surgery. We would therefore recommend you re-register with a local GP surgery as soon as possible.
Please see this link on the NHS.uk website on how to find more local GP Surgeries: Find a GP - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
Please complete this form below if you have moved addresses and are still within our practice catchment area. Once completed, please return by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), by post or hand in at our Reception desk.
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.
