Register as New Patient
To register, first please check that you live within our practice area (see map opposite) if so, you are welcome to register with us as follows:
- Collect and complete the registration form (GMS1) and New Patient Quistionnaire from the surgery
- provide proof of residency by way of a copy of a recent utility bill.
- provide a copy of one form of photographic ID such as a passport or driving licence.
Send copies of all three documents to the surgery in the post, or drop them in the box at the front of the building.
We shall then issue you with a health questionnaire which will provide us with useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception staff for further information.
We regret we are unable to offer online registration at present.
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.
Disabled Patient Facilities
Disabled patient facilities are available at this practice including:
- dedicated disabled car parking bays at the front of the Surgery
- level access to our Reception, with automatic sliding doors
- accessible toilet facilities in Reception
Please call Surgery on 0151 228 9101 if you have any specific needs and we shall do our best to help.
