HOW DO I...
REGISTER WITH THE PRACTICE?

If you would like to register with the practice you can contact us by phone or call in person and speak to the reception staff who will explain the procedure and ask you to complete the appropriate paperwork.

A new patient will fill in a GMS1 form and health questionnaire, supported by photo ID and proof of address ie utility bill 

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 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 the practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the practice. 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. 

Please see the temporary resident download form

HOW DO I...
OBTAIN A HOME VISIT?

Patients are requested to telephone before 10.00am if a visit is required that day. Emergency visits only will be arranged after that time. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to prioritise house calls. Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that is takes to do a home visit. Be prepared to give your telephone number so the doctor can ring you back if necessary.
