Registration

If you live within our practice boundary, please download our registration forms & return in person to our Reception team.  Please note you will not automatically be registered on the day therefore please do not expect to be seen immediately. We aim to register new patients within 7 working days, therefore please call us to confirm your details are on our system. Within this timeframe you will be expected to contact your current Surgery for medication / appointment requests.

We require photo identification (e.g. passport or driving licence) and proof of address (e.g. utility bill) for full registration & you will therefore be required to apply in person at our reception desk - PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR REGISTRATION DOCUMENTS - WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PROCESS YOUR REGISTRATION.

All new patients can book a 10 minute 'new patient check' with our Healthcare Assistant, once you are registered as our patient. Please ensure you speak to our reception team if you need to see a Doctor to discuss more in depth issues as our receptionist will book the appointment to allow enough time for the Doctor to ascertain your clinical needs. 

Please contact our Reception Team on 01279 827608 if you have any queries.

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 with us if we have appointment availability. The surgery reserves the right to refuse temporary registration where appointment capacity is limited.

Temporary Residents will only be treated for acute medical conditions and should return to their own GP for non-urgent referrals and chronic condition management.

To register as a temporary patient please contact our Reception team, who will take your contact details/symptoms & triage with our GP to ascertain appointment availability.  Our Reception team will contact you back with an update.

If you are seen by our GP, you will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to your offered appointment to complete a GMS3 temporary resident registration form and supply the relevant Identification.

You cannot register as a temporary patient with our practice if you are already registered with a GP in the local area.
