Join the Practice
Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area (see map opposite) and have not previously been removed from our list you are welcome to register with us.
Simply collect the relevant forms from reception and make sure you fill in one for each family member. Alternatively you may complete online versions below.
When joining the practice you will be allocated a doctor. This is for administration purposes only, patients are free to choose which doctor they would prefer to have a consultation with, although it may not always be possible, as the workload needs to be fairly distributed amongst the partners.
The health centre main entrance has automatic doors. All patient toilets have wheelchair access. A hearing loop is available at the front reception desk.
You can register as a patient at the surgery if you live within the area shown on the map.
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.
