Join the Practice
Register to Join our Practice
We welcome patients who live within our practice area to register with us. To register with the practice please complete the GP registration form below. You will also need to provide some photograph ID. If you are unsure whether you live within our catchment area please speak to one of our receptionists who will be able to advise you.
Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice and you will be sent a new medical card. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice.
If you are on regular medication, please make a 20 minute appointment with one of the GP's. This will allow our doctors to review your medication stay on top of your health care needs.
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 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.
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.
