Join the Practice

Register as a New Patient

Please bring your medical card to the surgery if possible. All new patients will be invited to complete a registration form (GMS1) along with a health questionnaire. Both documents are available online via the links below.

Please also provide any childhood immunisation information for any children registering and if possible bring the child’s red book.

Please note that you will be registered with the practice once we have received your completed registration form and are able to book appointments with any GP.

We are sorry but we are unable to take online registrations for patients in Residential or Nursing Homes.  Please contact the surgery for paper registration document.

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

Use the Practice Area Map opposite to check if you live in the practice's catchment area.

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.

Named Accountable GP

Upon registration with the surgery, you will be allocated a named accountable GP.

Your named accountable GP is the doctor you are registered with and is one of the four partners at the Practice.

Please ask at reception if you wish to find out who your named GP is. If you want to choose a different partner as your named GP, please inform the receptionist.

The named accountable GP is responsible for patients' overall care at the Practice and for ensuring that contracted services are delivered to patients. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice.

We know that it is not always possible to see your named GP and so we have no restrictions on seeing other doctors at the Surgery.
