    How to Register as a Patient

    1. Print off and complete the following form for each person wishing to register. We will need you to fully complete and sign the form before you can be registered. This will enable us to obtain your records from your previous surgery before you next need advice or treatment:
      Download the Permanent Patient Registration form (GMS1)
    2. Bring the fully completed and signed form with you to the practice together with two forms of identification for each person. A photo ID such as your driving licence or Passport and a utility bill with your address on it are the common forms of identification used. There are other suitable forms of identification we accept as alternatives, please ask reception for details
    3. Do you care for someone who could not manage without you or are you someone that is cared for?
      If yes, please take a look at the resources on our carers page.
    4. If you want to register with a particular doctor, we will do our best to carry out your request. We will tell you if we cannot meet your preference and why we cannot meet it.

    Health Checks for New Patients

    As a new patient we will invite you to see our practice nurse or health care support worker for an initial health check. When we carry this out we will find out about your medical history, arrange for any blood tests you need and arrange for you to attend our chronic disease management clinics, if appropriate.

    These health checks are very important as we are able to establish your health profile early on and offer the best possible support from when you first register with us.

    Please make every effort to attend as it is for your benefit.

    Visiting Patients (Temporary Residents)

    If you are away from home and become unwell we can see you as a Temporary Patient. You can be seen for a problem that has developed or needs immediate attention. It is preferable for you to attend your own Surgery whenever possible, remember your Primary Care Team know you well and can offer appropriate follow up.

    Please be aware we will be able to supply emergency medication for a short period only to treat the problem or if you have forgotten your medications. On your return home we recommend that you contact your own GP Practice.

    To register you will need to bring your passport and complete our Temporary Resident Registration form (GMS3 download here) (also available from reception).
