If you would like to register as a patient at this practice, you must reside within the practice area and be eligible for treatment under the NHS.
As a guide the practice area borders are:
You will need to complete various forms including an NHS Family Doctors Services Registration Form (GMS1), please bring it with you or you can request a registration form from a member of our reception team. You will also be asked to complete a medical questionnaire (which is useful as your medical records can take a while to arrive).
Please try and avoid our busiest times when you bring in your registration forms so we can devote time to you - please allow an hour for us to check your forms, take your blood pressure etc. Try and come in the afternoon and not on a Monday.
When you return the completed forms you should also bring proof of your address (e.g. a recent utility bill or bank statement) and if you were not born in the UK, your passport. If you are on any repeat medication please book an appointment to see a GP.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration, not the date you bring in the forms. Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

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.
