New Patient Registration
If you are a new patient you should bring two forms of ID one with a photo the other with your name and address i.e. a utility bill, with children we need to see their birth certificate. You register with the practice but you can see any GP. You will also be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and be invited to make an appointment for a basic health check with one of our nurses.
You have the right to express a preference to receive services from a particular practitioner or class of practitioner either generally or in relation to any particular condition and we will record this preference. We will endeavour to comply with this but please note that we need not do so if the preferred practitioner has reasonable grounds for refusal to provide services to you or does not routinely perform the service in question within the practice.
You must complete the relevant questionnaire pack for each patient.
Proof of parental responsibility and ID must be bought into the surgery when registering a child
If you have any additional communication needs please let the practice know along with your preferred method of communication.

The map shows the area we cover, please use the postcode checker to ensure you are within our catchment zone.
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.
