We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
You can register by completing a form available from reception. To save time you can also download and print a registration form. You will need to complete this by hand and bring it to the surgery.
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a new patient registration appointment with the Nursing team.
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
You may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it to the practice and a new patient appointment will be made for you.

Benzodiazepines and Hypnotics Medication
This Surgery does not issue repeat (on-going) Benzodiazepine or Hypnotic prescriptions to newly registered patients. Patients who are taking this type of medication and wish to register with us will be offered an 8 weeks reduction and then stop programme.
Agreement with this programme is a strict requirement for registration with this Surgery.
Existing patients taking regular Benzodiazepines of Hypnotics will be asked to attend surgery for a medication review with the GP.
Patients unwilling to comply with this programme are advised to consider registering with another surgery.
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 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.
