New Patient Registration
If you live within the Practice catchment area you should register with the Practice as soon as possible.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
Forms are available to download from the link below and medical treatment is available from the date of registration.
Please return the completed forms to reception.
New Patient Registration Form (please complete form to register)
New Patient Medical Health Questionnaire (please complete the Medical Health Questionnaire and relevant consent forms contained within this pack).
The medical health questionnaire helps the GP or Nurse to understand your immediate medication and treatment needs whilst waiting for your medical records to transfer.
Please remember to bring all completed documents to the practice in good time if you require an appointment.
If you have any queries regarding registering with our practice, please come along and discuss this with one of our practice team who will be happy to help you.
Named Accountable GP
The Government requires GP Practices to allocate a Named Accountable GP to all their patients from April 2015.
All of our patients have now duly been allocated a Named Accountable GP but can still continue to see any GP of choice within the Practice.
If you wish to know the name of your Accountable GP please ask when you are next in contact with the Practice.
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.

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.
