Register as New Patient
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Registration Process and Documents
Print off the New Patient Adult & Child Registration and GMS1 forms opposite. Please complete both forms and bring with you prior to your first visit to the practice or on your first visit to the practice along with your identification documents. You need to print both of these documents for each patient you are registering.
If you are registering a child under 16 you will need to bring a birth certificate. One or both of the parents named on the birth certificate must be registered at the practice.
Before completing the Data Sharing section of the form, please download and read the supplementary information for further details and links on data sharing and access to your records.
You only need to complete the online Accessible Information Form if you have information and / or communication needs relating to a disability, impairment or sensory loss.
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.
We are currently accepting new patients who live in the following areas:
If you live in a village or town other than those listed above you will need to register at another surgery local to you. To find other local surgeries please click here.
