New Patient Registration
If you wish to register you will need to complete a registration form. We will send you a message once you are registered.
If you have any repeat medication you should get at least a months supply of medication to allow electronic records to be received by the practice.
Please be aware we may be in touch with an appointment for a new patient medication review if this is required, this could be with a GP or Nurse Practitioner or pharmacist.
Note - some medications such as opiates / gabapentinoids are no longer routinely prescribed at this practice for long term use as the risks of harm generally outweigh the benefits, this may be subject to ongoing review and reduction.
If you have a lasting power of Attorney (LPA) in place, could you please bring the original copy of the documentation along with original copies of photographic ID for each of the Attorneys to the surgery at the point of registration

A practice can refuse an application to register, only if they have reasonable grounds for doing so. The practice will inform the applicant within 14 days with the reasons for refusal.
Our Practice welcomes all patients and does not discriminate on the grounds of age, appearance, disability, gender, medical condition, race, religion, sexual orientation or social class.
If you have a long term condition (LTC) you will be invited annually to review your health and medication.
Please note it is practice policy not to allow children to be regsitered at the practice unless they also have a parent or carer registered with us at the same address.
Change of Details
Please inform us immediately if any of your details change, i.e. address/name/telephone/mobile number. It is essential that our records are kept up to date in order to provide you with the best service. You must change your details at reception or via our secure online form below and bring some proof of your new address.
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 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.
Your Named GP
All Patients registered with the surgery will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the surgery. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
