Register as a New Patient

The doctors welcome any new patients who live within our practice area

You will need to complete new patient registration forms which are available at reception or alternatively can be completed online via the links below.

We will ask you for proof of identity i.e. photo ID and proof of address.

Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to us from your previous practice. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive with us.

The practice has a non-discrimination policy for accepting new patients. There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case, simply choose another GP in your local area.

Please contact reception for further information.

Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.

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.
