We would ask patients, where possible, to come to the surgery between 09:30 and 17:00 to register to avoid the busy peak times at the start and end of the day.
(During the period of COVID-19 we ask patients to not attend the surgery for registration purposes, please email all completed registration documents together)
Your registration will be with the partnership. However, you have the right to express a preference for an individual GP. You may indicate this on the ‘application to join form’. However, please be aware that some of the GPs only work part time and not all of the GPs provide every service you may require. Your request, if made, will be entered onto the computer registration template as your preferred doctor.
Please complete a GMS1 form, Summary Care Record Factsheet, EPS Nomination Form and New Patient Questionnaire before coming to the surgery:
Registration Cannot Be Done without completing ALL FIVE forms.
Proof of address will need to be attached via email with the forms, photo ID is also requested if you require Online Access

Please try to obtain your NHS number before registering, as this will make the registration process much easier. You can find this on your NHS medical card, or alternatively your current GP will be able to give it to you. You will also need to bring proof of your address to the practice when you register such as a tenancy agreement or utility bill.
If you wish to register for the on-line facility, please provide originals of photographic identification along with a recent letter with identification of your name and full address for security purposes. Patients are to provide photocopies of these two documents along with the originals to scan into your records.

If you have never registered with a GP in the UK before, we would need to verify your identity before we can register you. Please contact reception to find out what forms of ID are accepted.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.

Changing Your Address
If you move to a new home, please inform us immediately, so we can update your records.
If you are out of our catchment area, you will be required to register with a GP Practice nearer your new home.
