Register as a New Patient
We welcome patients who live within our Practice boundary (click here to download a zoomable map)
Please request a New Patient Registration Form from Reception or call 023 9241 2846. Please bring two forms of ID with you, one of which must be photo ID.
You will be told at registration who your named doctor is. This will be the doctor with overall responsibility for your care. However you will still be able to see any doctor in the Practice and your named doctor can be changed on request.
The changes in the contract now mean that all patients should have a named GP.
All new patients registering with the Practice may be offered a health screening assessment. This is a valuable check-up as it can identify potential problems and introduce you to the Practice and to the services we can offer you and your family.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. 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.
