New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area, you can register with this practice by completing a registration form (GSM1).
You may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice. You will be allocated to a named GP who will be responsible for the overall coordination of your medical care. Should you have a preference for which GP that is we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Check below the boundary map for new patients registration at the surgery. Use our postcode checker if you are unsure.
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.
Out Of Area Registration
There is an option if you live further away but wish to register with this practice and this is called ‘an out of area registration’. This means you could register with us and attend here for appointments, however we are unable to carry out home visits. This service is by application only and is at the discretion of the GP. Please read this leaflet for more information: OOAR V1 Jan 15 .pdf
Should you wish to register as an out of area patient, having read the information, please complete the registration form and inform the patient services team that you wish to register as an out of area patient. The request will be passed to the GP’s for consideration and you will be notified of the outcome. The GP’s decision is final.
