New Patient Registration Policy
- Live in our practice catchment area (see below)
- Proof of address (tenancy agreement, council tax bill, utility bill or bank statement), your NHS number and passport or photo ID. These documents are not a mandatory requirement and you will not be refused registration if you cannot produce them.
- Anyone regardless of nationality and residential status may register and consult with a GP without charge. Therefore, all asylum seekers and refugees, overseas visitors, students, people on work visas and those who are homeless, whether lawfully in the UK or not, are eligible to register with a GP practice even if those visitors are not eligible for secondary care.
- Complete the Registration form (GMS1), available at the reception desk

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.
