If you wish to register at the practice please ask at Reception for a registration form OR click here to go to the Patient Resources page where you will be able to print and complete the necessary forms and bring them into the surgery with the relevant forms of identification.
It is important that you complete all the fields on the registration form as an incomplete form may result in a delay with your registration. (You will need to contact your old surgery if you do not know your NHS Number).
You will be invited to attend a brief interview with a nurse to obtain some initial information about your health.
You have the right to express a preference for your registered doctor but it may not be possible for you to see this doctor each time you wish to be seen

Patient Information Booklet
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 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 practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
You may be aware that new arrangements introduced from January 2015 now give people greater choice when choosing a GP practice. Patients may approach any GP practice, even if they live outside the practice area, to see if they will be accepted on to the patient list.
Out of area registration (with or without home visits) is voluntary for GP practices, meaning patients may be refused because they live out of area. If your application is considered, the GP practice will only register you (without home visits) if it is clinically appropriate and practical in your individual case. In order to assess this, we may:
If accepted, you will attend the practice and receive the full range of services provided as normal at the surgery. You may on occasion develop an urgent illness or injury at home that means attending the GP surgery as normal would not be appropriate and under these circumstances, please contact the practice in the first instance. If we determine you need access to services local to where you live we may ask you to call NHS 111. NHS 111 will then direct you to the local service that has been established by NHS England for patients such as you. This local service could be a GP practice near to where you live, the local walk-in or urgent care centre, A & E or minor injuries unit. This local service will then decide if you can attend for an urgent face to face appointment with a healthcare professional or if a home visit is needed, which will be based on your individual circumstances.
You should be aware that we will provide (if requested) the GP or healthcare professional with basic patient details in order that they can carry out their consultation safely and effectively. By registering as an ‘out of area’ registered patient, you are giving your consent to this information being provided.
Note that if you need medical care during the out of hours period when GP surgeries are normally closed (between 18.30 and 08.00am weekdays, and during weekends), NHS 111 will direct you to the local out of hours care provider for your area.
