New Patient Registration


Our patient registration policy does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition.

We would encourage new patients to register online but if you would prefer to register in person, we warmly welcome you to attend the practice during our office hours 

How to Register

We would recommend that you live within our catchment area if you are registering

Need Help?

If you are unable to complete the online NHS registration form, you can visit the practice to collect a paper version of the forms.

You will need to bring with you, your ID and proof of address. For example, this could be in the form of:

  • A utility bill
  • Bank statement
  • Council tax bill
  • A pension or benefits document

All documents must be dated within the last 3 months. We are unable to accept mobile phone bills as proof of residence.

We will need your NHS number when you register. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

Out of area Registration

We will happily consider new patient registrations for those living outside of our practice area and understand that this can be more convenient for certain patients.

However as most referral pathways and services are postcode based, this may impact upon our ability to provide the best care.

  • Such registrations will be individually vetted by the senior GP team to determine whether we can safely meet the individual's care needs.
  • We cannot provide home visits for patients who live outside of our practice boundary area. 

Please contact us to discuss the posibilities of registering with us

Moving outside of the practice catchment area

If you are currently registered with our GP practice and have moved to a new address outside of our catchment area, we highly recommend that you register with a new GP practice closer to your new location.

If you wish to continue your registration with us, the senior practice team will review your case and make a decision based on whether it is clinically safe and advisable for you to remain registered out of the area or not. Please note that their decision is final.

If you live outside of the practice area and wish to be registered with us (e.g. because you work near to the practice), you may request to be registered with us. The senior practice team will decide if it is clinically safe and advisable for you to be registered out of area or not. Their decision is final.

Temporary Services

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 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.

Your Named GP

All Patients registered with the surgery will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the surgery. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
