Register as a New Patient
To register as a patient, please complete a registration document and new patient questionnaire available at reception.
You will need to provide photo ID and proof of address when handing in your completed forms.
If you have a preference regarding one of the doctors please inform the receptionist at the time of registration and it will be noted in your medical record.
Change of Details
If you change address please inform the receptionist as soon as possible. They will be able to tell you whether or not you need to change your doctor. We have to restrict our patient catchment area to provide a satisfactory service.
Please also ensure we have your up-to-date telephone number in case we need to contact you urgently.
Temporary Patient 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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
