Join the practice
Please see our Practice Area below to see if you live inside our catchment area. Provided that you live in the practice area, you are able to register at the practice.
If you wish to register you may click on the link below to open the registration form. When you have completed all of the details, please visit the the surgery where you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct. You will need to bring along a form of identification, these can include a birth certificate, driving licence, passport, utility bill or bank statement
In some cases depending on your previous GP, the registration record request can be completed electronically and we will receive your medical records within 24 hours. If this is not possible then it will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to receive your records from Patient Services.
Live within boundary area?
To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take time for us to receive your medical records. If you prefer you can print and fill in the appropriate forms from the link below and bring along when you come into register with your completed registraion form.
We also have attached some important information called 'NHS Summary Care Record with Additional information'. Please complete this form if you choose to have this information included in your SCR.
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.
GP practices are now required as part of the contract changes for 2015-16 to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support their surgery provides to them.
As one of our patients, you have been allocated a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support our surgery provides to you and will work with other healthcare professionals who are also involved in your care, to ensure that it meets your individual needs.
This does not prevent you from seeing any other clinician in the practice as you currently do now.
