You can collect a registration pack from reception or print one off here New Patient Registration Pack
We are only able to provide you with urgent or emergency medical services until you have formally joined the practice. We try to keep the joining (or “registration”) process as simple as possible..
You do not need an appointment to register. Just come to reception at your most convenient surgery.
We will help you fill in a questionnaire about yourself, your health and medical history. This helps us to give you the best care.
We would then like you to book to have a brief check-up with our practice nurses. This includes blood pressure, weight and a urine test.
Once the registration form, questionnaire and check-up are done, we can register you with the health authority as having joined the practice. We will then be able to offer you the whole range of NHS health services.
If you have provided us with a mobile number we will occasionally send out text messages, please let us know if you do not wish to receive them.
We operate from two sites, both practices are accessible by wheelchairs to all clinical areas and both have disabled toilets.
Urgent appointments are available at both sites.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
