Registering with the Practice

New Patient Registration

You may already be aware but a new GMS1 form is now available for Practices to order further to the removal of the organ and blood donation section. The GMS1 on the website currently will be out of date soon as we will no longer be able to record patients’ choice from 30th September. Below is the updated form if you could please update the link:

Please visit our Practice Boundary page to see if you fall within our practice boundary.

Registration documentation must be completed and submitted to us as soon as possible, allowing us time to enter your details onto our clinical system and for your notes to arrive from your previous health centre. Please do not leave it until the day you need to be seen at the health centre. (We will of course make exceptions where there is an urgent medical need).

Forms filled in online will need to be signed at the surgery. We will require you to bring in one form of ID for each patient who is registering.

Alternatively you can come into the surgery and we will provide you with the relevant forms to be completed. You will also be asked to complete a health questionnaire.

Where you are registering a child please bring their red book with you to the surgery so copies of their immunisation history can be copied and scanned to their records.

Suitable forms of ID:

  • A newer style driving licence (with your photo printed on it)
  • A valid passport
  • A utility bill with the address you provide us with on your registration form

New Patient Health Check

All new patients are invited to have a health check. This health check, along with a questionnaire, provides us with an opportunity to meet you and obtain any important background medical history before your medical records arrive from your former practice.

Please remember to bring any health related documents with you when you attend your first appointment, along with details of any medication that you may be taking.

Change your Personal Details

Please let the practice know if you change your personal details. This can be done by completing our online Change of Details form.

Please note that if you have changed your surname, we will need proof of identification with your new surname, for example, a marriage certificate.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

Please read the A Patient Guide to GP Services booklet.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see someone, 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.

Please print and complete the Temporary Services form and then bring it into the practice.
