How to Register

We are now using a new online service called Register with a GP Surgery that makes it easy to register with us.

Just fill in this quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Paper forms are still available if you need one and can be collected from reception.

Your Named GP

When you register, you will be allocated a named GP who has overall responsibility for your care and support. You will receive notification of this via text or letter.

Patients have the right to express a preference to receive services from a particular doctor or professional group and the practice will endeavour to comply with any reasonable preference expressed.

Nevertheless, the practice has the right to refuse such a request where it has reasonable grounds to do so; this includes equity of distribution of patients across GP’s.

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.
