How to Register as a Patient

  1. Print off and complete the following form for each person wishing to register. We will need you to fully complete and sign the form before you can be registered. This will enable us to obtain your records from your previous surgery before you next need advice or treatment:

  2. Bring the fully completed and signed form with you to the practice together with two forms of identification for each person. A photo ID such as your driving licence or Passport and a utility bill with your address on it are the common forms of identification used. There are other suitable forms of identification we accept as alternatives, please ask reception for details
  3. Do you care for someone who could not manage without you or are you someone that is cared for?
    If yes, please take a look at the resources on our carers page.

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.
