We are pleased to welcome new patients to register at the practice. Call in at the surgery and complete a registration form for each person who is registering. Please note that new registration forms must be signed by the person registering except in the case of a child under 16 when a parent or guardian may sign on their behalf.
All new patients (aged 15 years and over) will be offered a new patient health check. We will ask about your medical history, immunisation status - such as tetanus, about lifestyle – exercise, smoking, alcohol, and about any repeat medication you may be taking. We will also offer advice related to your general health.
If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from any GP surgery.
If you need treatment for more than 14 days you will need to register with that GP surgery as a temporary or permanent patient.
The surgery will ask you to complete a GMS3 (temporary registration) form - Click here to download the form.
You can register as a temporary resident if you plan to live near the GP surgery for up to three months.
After three months you will have to apply to register with that surgery as a permanent resident.
You can register temporarily with a GP while away from home for work, study or holiday. You'll still remain registered with your permanent GP.
Your temporary GP will pass details of any treatment you have to your GP, who will add the information to your medical records.
If your application to become a temporary patient is refused, you can still receive emergency treatment for up to 14 days.
