Register as New Patient
If you are not currently a patient at this practice and you wish to register with any of our doctors, all you have to do is call in at the surgery. Our receptionists will give you a form and a health questionnaire to complete; please bring with you your medical card if you have one and two forms of identification; one should be photo ID such as a passport or driving licence and the other should be recent proof of your home address, such as a utility or mobile phone bill under three months old. You should also bring a urine sample.
Sometimes our list is full. If this happens you will not be able to register with us but our receptionists will tell you what to do next.

Temporary Patient 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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Disabled Patient Facilities
Our premises provide easy access for patients with mobility problems. A ramp to the front entrance, a lift inside and special toilet facilities are all available. Our short stairs have chair lifts. If you cannot access a doctor’s or nurses’ room because you cannot use the stairs or lifts, or find it too difficult, please tell reception when you book your appointment and they will arrange for the doctor or nurse to see you in a ground floor room.
