New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the doctor. 

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.

It is easy to register as a new Patient for you and your family. You can register online, by completing the online registration forms (Pre- Registration; Online Medical Questionnaire and Alcohol Questionnaire) found in the Registering Online tab. This enables registrations to be submitted electronically without the need to print anything or visit the Practice. Alternatively, registration packs can be collected from reception, or you can download and print the registration forms by clicking the links below. Once the forms are completed, please bring them into reception. 

To find your NHS number

Your NHS number is 10 digit number. You do not need it to register but it can make it easier for our administration staff to find your previous medical records.

For each patient registering, two forms must be completed:

  • A GMS1 family Doctor Services Registration form.
  • A relevant New Patient Medical Questionnaire, as it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records from your previous Practice.

This needs to be printed and completed for each patient registering.

To be printed and completed for each adult registering.

 To be printed and completed for each child aged 0-5 years.

To be printed and completed for each child aged 6-15 years.

Included within the Adult New Patient Pack is a Patient Online Access form which offers patients the opportunity to book appointments and request repeat medication online. Should you complete this form, please ensure that you bring photo ID to Reception when you hand your forms in.  Acceptable documents include a passport, photo driving licence, bus pass or season ticket. 

Registering Online

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the “Send” button to email your form to us.

When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. 

Please answer the questions in the short alcohol questionnaire to enable us to assess your alcohol consumption rate and offer advice if necessary.

When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the forms to confirm that the details are correct.

Temporary Registration

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 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.
