Changes to registration during Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, patients are asked to register without coming into the practice. To register you will need to complete our regsitration form and email it to us.

You may also need to email the practice with a picture of your photo identification and proof of address such as bank statement, recent utility bill showing your name and current address.

When normal service resumes, you will be asked to bring the hard copies into the practice.

 

Live within our boundary area?

We welcome new patients to the surgery who reside within the catchment area. You can check if you are within our catchment area by entering your postcode below.

 
 

Registering with the Practice

You can apply to register with us by completing one of the registration forms available at reception.

We never discriminate on the grounds of age, sex, medical condition, race, disability or social class, and if we are unable to register you we will always provide you with a reason in writing.

If you are already registered with us and move out of the area, we may still be able to provide you with medical services. Contact reception for more details.

Patient Registration Form

 

Named GP

Whilst you are registered with the practice, every patient has a named GP who is responsible for overseeing their clinical care, they are known as your 'Usual GP'.  If you are unsure who your 'Usual GP' is please ask.

 

Temporary residents

If you are visiting the area or here for only a short period of time, and need to see a doctor, please contact reception on 01253 955954. You will then be asked to complete the relevant form.

Once you have completed the form you can receive emergency treatment from the 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 the practice.
