Join the Practice

Register as a New Patient

If you wish to join the Practice you need to fill in the forms available at reception.  If accepted you will be given an appointment with the Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant for a full health check. This is an opportunity to discuss any health needs or concerns you may have.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

Online 'Pre-Registration' With The Practice

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your forms to us.

When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the forms to confirm that the details are correct.

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.
