Join the Practice
Register as a New Patient
We welcome new patients who live within our practice area. The reception team will advise new patients if their home is within our area. All new patients are asked to complete a registration form and health questionnaire prior to registration at the practice. These are available online via the links below.
The practice will not discriminate against any patient wishing to join our practice list on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition.
New patients are able to book a GP or Nurse appointment on the day following receipt of their registration forms. In certain circumstances an emergency appointment can be made.
Patients on repeat medications will need to speak to a doctor before getting their first prescription. An appointment will be offered as appropriate.
In normal circumstances new patients are offered a new patient health check – covid restrictions no longer apply.
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.
