Please note, library cards, video rental cards, health club cards, private rent book or similar will not be acceptable as proof of identity.
You will also need to complete a registration form (GPR) and a health questionnaire (see Registration Forms) which will provide us with useful information whilst we wait for your past medical records.
We'd like to see all new patients who are on medication or who have a significant past medical history so that we can update your records as soon as possible. Your past medical records will come to the practice, but depending where you come from, this may take several weeks.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.

If you wish to register with the practice, and you have checked you are within the practice boundary, click on the links below to open and print the registration form. It would be helpful if you could also print off and complete a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take several weeks for your past medical records to reach us. Hand the completed forms into reception as soon as possible - don't wait until you are ill before you register! If you require to make an appointment for a health check, this will be organised for you.

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.

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.
