How to register
We welcome new patients.
If you live or move outside our practice area, you can still register; however, we will not do home visits.
A map of the area is available here.
You may choose to see any of our doctors, and we will try to offer appointments with the doctor of your choice, timetable and holidays permitting. All doctors have access to your computerised medical record.
If you have been registered with a GP practice in the UK before, please provide your NHS number.
If you have, please provide:
- One recent proof of address (e.g. a utility bill dated within the past three months)
- One proof of residency (e.g. passport, Home Office papers, a full UK drivers' licence).
To make your registration process easier and quicker, we prefer that you
complete your registration online.
However, you may also bring your completed forms to reception.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or 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 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, 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 have been tested with user groups.
