If you live in our practice area (please see practice area tab for boundaries or click HERE TO ENTER YOUR POSTCODE) and would like to register with us please complete a registration form which is available from our reception team. On registering you will be given a choice of doctor from those whose lists are currently open.
You will be asked to provide two forms of identification when registering with the Practice. Please provide one form of photographic ID (passport or drivers' licence ) and a current utility bill or bank statement confirm your address.
New patients are encouraged to continue to see their own doctor for future problems. This policy, we think, fosters the doctor/patient relationship and improves continuity of care. We do ask patients to avoid registering on a Monday as this is normally our busiest day.
You will need to see the doctor to obtain your first prescription at this practice—please bring your prescription repeat list or current medication with you when attending for this appointment.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

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.

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.
In accordance with NHS Regulations, the Practice is unable to register ANY TEMPORARY RESIDENT without IDENTIFICATION. Ideally, this would be an official document containing name and date of birth and current address. Examples include DRIVING LICENCE, PASSPORT, BIRTH CERTIFICATE, UTILITY BILL, BANK STATEMENT ETC.
