Register as New Patient
We accept applications from patients living within our Practice area (see map opposite). Click on https://gp-registration.nhs.uk/M83034 to register online or you can collect a form from reception. If you are on any repeat medication you will need to bring in your repeat medication request form before we are able to issue a prescription.
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 registration process as simple as possible.
You do not need an appointment to register. Just contact reception.
We will invite you to book a check-up with our practice nurse / health care support worker. This includes blood pressure, weight and a urine test.
Once the above process is complete, we can fully register you and will then be able to offer you the whole range of NHS health services. All new and current patients are allocated a named GP, this information is available on request from reception and is printed on your repeat prescription requests.
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.
All patients at the practice have a named GP this information is available from reception and is also printed on repeat prescription requests.
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 a local GP practice for 14 days for immediate & necessary treatment. 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 the 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.

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.
