New Patient Registration
If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete and sign a GPR REGISTRATION FORM to request registration at the practice. We routinely ask patients for some form of identification, for example photo identity such as your passport or driving licence and/or proof of address on a recent utilities or council tax bill.
If you have a Medical Card (Form GP4) this would also be helpful. Please complete all mandatory sections of the GPR form as this will help us to quickly obtain your medical records from your previous practice.
You will also be asked to complete a Patient Health Check Questionnaire to give us some key information about your past medical history. If for any reason your application is declined (this is very unlikely), we will write to you to explain the reason.
You have the right to express a preference to receive services from a particular clinician or group of clinicians within the Team, generally or in relation to a particular condition. If you express a preference, then we will record that preference in your medical records.
Your registration will be with the practice as a whole rather than with an individually named GP. However, you may request to see any doctor, and indeed it can be better if you can build a relationship with a particular doctor. You will understand that all the doctors are busy and that your preferred doctor may be fully booked on the day you wish to see him/her, but we will do our best to find an appointment to suit your needs.
Should you or any member of your family change your name, address, marital status or telephone number PLEASE REMEMBER TO NOTIFY US as soon as possible.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

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.
