New Patients

Register as a New Patient

If you live in our catchment area you are welcome to register with us. Please complete a registration form and a new patient questionnaire for each person registering (forms can be downloaded below). As it may take some time before your medical notes reach us from your previous Practice the information on your new patient questionnaire is essential for your new GP, and enables them to continue your health care whilst we await your notes.

Once you have completed your registration forms you will need to attend the health centre.

 

Change of Contact Details

From time to time the Practice may have to contact you regarding appointments, test results and so on. It is therefore important that the contact information we hold for you is accurate.

Can you please ensure that you inform us of any changes to your address or telephone contact numbers. This is particularly important if you change mobile telephone contracts and numbers.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
