Register as a New Patient
New patients will be asked to complete a registration form AND a health questionnaire. Both forms are available below. Please ensure that you give us full details as it may take some time for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. You will be offered a new patient check with the practice nurse.
Patients have a right to express a preference of practitioner however this may be dependent on availability. We do not discriminate on the grounds of age, sex, marital status, pregnancy, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
If you wish to register with our practice please bring along the following documentation:
- Proof of identification (photographic) and your passport.
- You will also be asked to show proof of address, for example a utility bill, (although it is accepted that if you have just moved to the area you may not have this at the time of initial registration). If you are visiting from overseas other documentation may be required, the reception team will advise on the specific requirements.
Out of Area Registration
If you live outside the practice boundary area please see here for details.
You may also find this NHS guidance useful.
Please note that if we agree to register you and you live outside of our cathment area, then you will be added on our patient list as a non-visiting patient and you will not be eligible for home visits. For more info please see the link above.

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.
Third Party Consent
If you would like to give consent to your partner, family or a carer to your doctor details please download out Third Party Consent form to print, complete and bring into the practice or email a PDF copy to us. This means, when a family member, carer or your partner calls and they would like to know when your appointment is, we are able to tell them witout breaking confidentiality.

Summary Care Record
There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.
Why do I need a Summary Care Record?
Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.
Who can see it?
Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.
How do I know if I have one?
Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP
Do I have to have one?
No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.

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.
