Registering With The Practice
If you wish to register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details print off a copy and bring these forms with you when you visit the surgery for the first time.
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 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.
Are you from abroad?
You are eligible for free NHS treatment if you have been or intending to live and work in UK for at least six months. If you do not meet the criteria you can still register with us and will be seen as a private patient.
