Register as a New Patient
The receptionists will be happy to guide you through the procedure. We ask that you live within our practice area (see map below).
There are two forms that require to be completed.
These are issued and taken in between the hours of 11:00 and 16:00 by our receptionist team. As these need to be checked please do not post these to us, or leave them with the receptionist before being checked, as this will cause a delay with your registration.
Should you be restricted with the collection time or unsuccessful in obtaining a registration form, please write to Wendy Hempseed Practice Manager. A decision will be made following a meeting with the GP Partners and you will be contacted in due course.
Please see at the foot of this page under "Further Information" for our practice policies including code of conduct and privacy policies.
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.
