New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you wish to register with us, please complete our online registration form or if you are unable to do this, please telephone us and one of our trained Care Navigators will be happy to advise you. To register you do not need to provide proof of ID, your address, your immigration status or an NHS number in order to receive care or see a GP.  

If you have any concerns whether your address is included in this catchment area or not, please ask our trained Care Navigators who will be happy to help you.  Our Practice Area is shown on the map opposite

After you register, you will be offered an appointment with the practice nurse. It is important that you keep this appointment, as it will help the doctor to look after any problems you may have while we wait for your records to arrive from your previous doctor.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
