If you live within our practice areas (please see 'Practice Areas' tab above) you are welcome to register with the surgery of your choice and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
Eligibility to register with one of our surgeries can be quickly confirmed from your address.We will require a recent utility bill to check you live within our catchment area AND PHOTO IDENTIFICATION (eg: passport, driving licence) to be bought into the surgery BEFORE you can be formally registered with us.
You will need to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Please come in to the surgery to sign your GMS1 and fill in the health questionnaire prior to making a new patient appointment with the GP.
All new patients are offered a health check with a GP to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
The following areas are covered by our surgeries. If in doubt please contact the relevant branch to check you are within our practice boundaries.
Unfortunately this process is unavailable as is under construction. Please pop into one of our Surgeries and our friendly staff will be happy to help you with your 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 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.
