Register As A New PatientLast Updated: Thursday, 14 September 2023
Please note that we only accept new patients who live in our published boundary (see map below)
Firstly check if you live within our practice area (See Below)
- Collect and complete the registration form (GMS1) and New Patient Questionnaire Form 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 passport or driving licence
Each GP practice has a defined area within which they will accept new patients.
To join the practice as a new patient your address must be inside the area marked in blue on the map (our inner boundary)
[The are marked in red represents our outer-boundary. Existing patients who move to a new address within the outer boundary are able to stay registered and enjoy continuity of care.]
When the form is completed please remember to sign it and either post it to the surgery address or deliver it yourself.
Please make sure that all the personal details are filled in clearly - including the details of your previous GP surgery - as this makes it much easier to identify you on the national system
If you are staying away from home and need medical support
Important: NHS 111
NHS 111 can direct you to the best place if you think you need medical help right now – you can call 111 or use NHS 111 online.
If you are staying temporarily away from your normal UK address or if you are a visitor from outside the UK you can register temporarily with this surgery.
This is to help you if you need medical help with a new or existing condition that cannot wait until you return home.
You will need to be staying at an address that is inside the area marked blue on the map on this page.
This applies to people who are temporarily at an address inside our boundary for between 24 hours and 3 months.
You will need to call the surgery to register as a temporary resident.
Support from your usual GP
Remember that you can often get support over the telephone from your usual GP surgery. If you live in England and you are staying temporarily in another part of England, your usual GP can send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacist in this area.
Upon registration you will be allocated a Named Accountable GP. This does not mean that you always have to see this GP, you can see anyone in the practice. You can also express your preference as to who this GP should be and we will do our best to accommodate this request. If you would like to know who your Named GP is then please ask at reception.
