New Patients

Non-urgent advice: New Patients

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). Completed forms should be returned in person to the surgery during opening hours. 

All new patients are now registered for our online services when they join the Practice. Please see details here

The health visitor will see new patients under 5 years old shortly after registration. 


Before registering, please check if you are in our catchment area by entering your postcode in the Practice Boundary tool on this page.

Non-urgent advice: Temporary Patients, 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.

Non-urgent advice: 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.

Non-urgent advice: 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.

Non-urgent advice: Disabled Access

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.
