Register as New Patient
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.
New patients are asked to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a medical questionnaire. Both forms are available below.
Please give us as much accurate information as possible as it will help us whilst we are waiting for your records to come through. If you are on regular medication please attach a copy of your repeat slip to your questionnaire and make an appointment with a GP either when you return your completed paperwork with one of our reception team or by submitting an online AccuRx request. Please make sure that you do this at least 10 days BEFORE your medication is due to run out.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please note that all inbound and outbound calls are recorded and may be used for training, monitoring and dispute resolution purposes.

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.

Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.
This does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP in the Practice. However seeing your usual GP will maintain continuity of care.
We have now allocated all patients to a named GP. New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be informed of their named GP within 21 days of registration. Patients can check at any time who their named GP is by asking a member of staff.
If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change. If you are aged 75 or over, have not had a consultation in the last 12 months and would like a health check please book an appointment with the healthcare assistant.
Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes wherever possible. Please contact reception to request the change.
