Registering at the Practice
Please see the map below or contact the surgery to check if you are within the practice boundary. We do not accept requests for registration from patients outside of the practice boundary area or accept a change of address to outside of the boundary area.
Patients wishing to register at the practice should complete a registration form and health questionnaire obtainable from the main reception desk.
You will need to provide a form of photographic ID and a utility bill to prove your residence is within our agreed practice boundary. Once completed and returned your details will be entered on our system and the process of requesting your notes from your previous practice will commence.
It may take a few weeks before your notes arrive at the practice and so you will be advised to use our Health Pod which will capture your blood pressure, weight and height which then calculates your BMI. Medication requests for new patients will need to be discussed with a GP during a telephone consultation.
If you are on holiday or away from home and have forgotten your medication then it is advised that you contact your registered GP surgery who are able to send a prescription electronically to a pharmacy nearest to where you are staying.
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 permanently register with the 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.
