New Patient Registration
Anyone who lives within our practice area can register with the practice.
If you have chosen to register with our practice then please do so as soon as is convenient.
Please do not wait until you are unwell as this will save you from having to complete the paperwork at a time when you may be feeling ill.
Once registered, your medical records are retrieved from your previous Doctor, this will ensure we are able to provide you with the best clinical care possible.
All new patients are required to complete the form below, before we can complete the registration process.
The registration forms can either be collected from Reception or completed online from the links above. These should then be completed and returned to the Surgery, along with two forms of identification. Once completed you will be registered with our practice.
Please allow 48 hours for us to process your registration.
A combination of the following can be accepted as identification:
- One item of photo ID, along with one document containing your address (must be less than 3 months old)
- birth certificate
- marriage certificate
- medical card
- driving licence
- local authority rent card

Live within our boundary area?
We welcome new patients requesting to register that live within the boundary.
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.
If you require emergency necessary treatment please contact the Practice on (01305) 774466.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the 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.
Your Named GP
All patients have a named GP. This means that your care will be managed by this GP and that your appointments will be with them to provide the continuity of care that our patients tell us they need.
If, however you find that your needs are not being met then you may choose to request a different GP. Please put your request in writing or speak to reception, advising who you wish to move to and why.
Change of Address
If you change name, address or telephone number, please let our receptionists know immediately.
