Register as a New Patient
You are welcome to register with us if you live within our Practice area; click here to see a map.
To register you will need to complete a registration form and an Online Services form if required. Online versions of both can be found below. It would be helpful if you have details of your previous doctor’s name and address. This will enable the Practice to get your medical notes from your last GP.
If you have a complex medical history or are on medication it would be helpful if you arranged a routine appointment with your named GP so they can get to know you.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about yourself across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Please note we are not a dispensing practice.
Temporary Patient Registration
We can only register you as a temporary patient if you need to be seen today. Please call the practice on 01235 639 521 option 2 to book an appointment and complete your registration. For more information on temporary registrations, please visit the NHS Webisite
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are not registered with a GP you will be unable to see one unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option or checking symptoms online at NHS 111.
If you are staying in the area but registered with a GP elsewhere, you will need to complete a temporary registration form.
To register as a temporary resident in England, you can find a GP near you.
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.
