New Patients

Register as a New Patient

We welcome new patients and would encourage all members of a family or household to register together. To register as a new patient you will need to live within our practice boundary.

If you would like to register with us please ask at reception for a registration form and health questionnaire. Alternatively, you can download our registration forms and associated health questionnaires by clicking on the links below:

The completed forms should be returned to the practice address or handed in. As they require signing, they cannot be submitted online at present. 

Please allow 10 working days for new registrations to be dealt with, after which time you will be able to book any appointments you require. If you require an appointment before this time, please inform our patient services team.

Please note we cannot register you without:

  • NHS Number
  • Photographic ID
  • Proof of current address

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, 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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
