Register as a New Patient

If you live within our catchment area (IG8) we will be happy to register you as one of our patients.

If you would like to register with the practice you will need to attend at the surgery in person. Please bring your medical card or a form of photo ID together with proof of your current address.

If you do not have your medical card for any reason please download this form, fill it in and bring it along with you (the form is also available from reception). For child registrations please bring their individual vaccination record (red book) and birth certificate.

Before attending at the surgery to register please check our catchment area map opposite (CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A LARGER VERSION).

Regrettably we will be unable to accept you if you are currently residing outside of the indicated area.

We process registrations every weekday between 10:00 - 12:30. If you cannot attend at these times please contact the surgery to make arrangements for your registration. There will be a basic form for you to fill in at the surgery and we will require your contact details and information about your health.

If you have any queries about registering please speak with reception.

You can read more about registering with a GP Practice on the NHS website.

Temporary 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.
