Patients wishing to register need to complete a Registration Form as well as a New Patient Questionnaire. These are obtainable from reception or can be downloaded on the links below (assistance is available should this be required). Please note we require you to complete both forms in order to register. Completed forms should be returned in person to the surgery during opening hours.
All new patients are now registered for our online services through Patient Access when they join the Practice. Please see details here.
The health visitor will see new patients under 5 years old shortly after registration. Patients over 75 years of age will be offered an annual health check, either at the Surgery or in their own home if they are housebound.
The practice will refuse an application to join it's list if the patient does not reside within the catchment area.
You can check if you are in our catchment area by clicking here and entering your postcode in the Catchment Tool.
No patient will be refused on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.
Temporary Patient Registrations, valid for up to 3 months
You can register as a temporary resident for up to 3 months. This can be helpful if you're living away from home but do not want to change your home GP surgery. It may be necessary to get a medical summary from your current GP Practice before you are seen by the GP, especially if requesting medication.
As a temporary resident we may not have access to your medical records, and therefore certain services may not be available to you. After 3 months, you'll have to reapply to register as a temporary resident or become a permanent patient. This is for your health protection.
Immediately Necessary Patients, valid for up to 14 days
This is for patients in the area who cannot attend their normal GP Practice and need to receive emergency treatment locally, i.e. those who cannot travel to their normal GP surgery. This service does not cover ongoing conditions.
This registration is only valid for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to go back to your own GP, or register as a temporary resident or a permanent patient with this practice.
Immediately necessary patients will not normally need ID.
Registering as a Temporary Resident/Immediately Necessary patient
Patients who are registering as a temporary patient should be able to provide,
- contact details for your permanent or previous GP – essential
and ideally have ID with them and the following information:
- details of any medical conditions they have
- details of medical conditions they have had in the past
- the name of any medicines they're currently taking
- details of anything they're allergic to
You will need to fill out a Temporary services form GMS3 which can be picked up from the surgery.
There is good disabled access to all of our consultation rooms at both practices. Designated parking bays are close to each surgery entrance. Please only use these spaces if you are a holder of a 'blue badge'
Each surgery has a ramp and wheelchair access. There is a disabled toilet located in the entrance to each practice.
