Join the practice

If you live within our Practice catchment area you are welcome to register with us and our Reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so it would help if you could provide proof by way of a recent utility bill.

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Both of these forms can be collected from reception at the surgery. 

All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

Information on our catchment area can be found at: https://www.primarycare.nhs.uk/publicfn/catchment.aspx?oc=D83028&h=100%&if=0

In order to register at the surgery you can either collect a registration pack from reception, or complete the forms below.

Summary Care Record Consent

Summary Care Records (SCR) are an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. They can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system involved in the patient's direct care.

If you are registered with a GP practice in England your SCR is created automatically, unless you have opted out.

You can choose to have additional information included in your SCR, which can enhance the care you receive.

If you would like this information adding to your SCR, then please complete this form and return to the surgery.

Temporary Registrations

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.
