Register as A New Patient
Patients can register with us without needing to provide proof of ID, address, immigration status or NHS number but you must live within our Practice boundary. It is however helpful to us to have two forms of ID (photo and address) as well as your NHS number and will enable us to register you more quickly.
You can check if you live within our Practice area by entering your postcode into the interactive map opposite (click here for a larger version of the map). New patients who live within the green practice boundary are welcome to register. Existing patients who move from the green area into the outer purple area are able to stay registered. Moving outside the purple boundary will mean registering at another, more local practice. We are unable to accept registrations from patients moving into the purple area from outside our outer boundary.
If your postcode is within our green boundary and you wish to register as a new patient please complete the New Patient Registration and New Patient Questionnaire forms below or ask at reception for details. Newly registered patients may be invited for a consultation after registering.
If you wish to choose a particular Partner for some or all medical conditions please let us know and this will be noted in your medical records. We will always try to ensure that this is possible but there may be occasions when it is not.
We aim to ensure staff are aware of the needs of our disabled patients. Most areas of the Practice are accessible by wheelchair and there are disabled toilets through the Blue waiting room and a disabled parking space at the front of the building.

If your postcode is within the green boundary shown on the map please complete the following for each member of your household:
- the New Patient Registration form
- the New Patient Questionnaire and
- the Summary Care Record form
Please do not attempt to register if your postcode is not within our green boundary (shown on the map above) as your application will be rejected.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must complete the three forms and submit them as your registration cannot be processed without all documents being submitted. Although not mandatory, it is extremely helpful to have your proof of ID and address in order to register you. Please email to email@example.com
Temporary Patient 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 immediately necessary treatment from the local GP practice for up to 15 days. After 15 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 with us as a temporary patient please complete the Temporary Services registration form. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer immediately necessary treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
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.
