New Patients

Register in person

If you aren't able to complete the form online, you can print off the forms below or collect them from Reception. Every person needs to fill in both a registration pack and a GMS1 form

 

What happens next?

We will aim to process your registration within three days. Once it has been completed, you will get a confirmation text from us. 

Once you have registered with the practice Primary Care Support England (PCSE) will be informed and your medical records will be requested from your previous GP. In most cases electronic records will transfer within a few days, but it may take several weeks for us to receive your older paper medical records.

If you are taking regular medication, it is important that you see a doctor BEFORE you request a repeat prescription. Please make sure you have at least two weeks worth of your medications left when you register to ensure you don’t run out. Our dispensary will take 5 days to prepare your prescription for collection.

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 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.

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.
