We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
You can register by either:
- completing the online patient registration form and patient health questionnaire (adult)
- completing a form available from reception
- downloading and printing a registration form to complete by hand and bring to the surgery.
Your registration with the practice is processed when you attend for a new patient health check. This applies to all patients over the age 5, unless the patient is a care home resident.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
If you take regular medication, please ensure you provide your repeat prescription slip from your previous GP practice.
This surgery does not issue repeat (on-going) Benzodiazepines or Z-drug prescriptions. Patients who are taking this type of medication and wish to register with us will be offered a gradual reduction programme. Patients taking regular Benzodiazepines or Z-drugs will be asked to attend a medication review with the GP where a reduction programme will be agreed. Patients will be provided with support to stop taking these medications. Agreement with this policy is a strict requirement for registration with the practice. This policy follows national guidance to ensure the safe use of these medications.
We are proud to be a ‘Safe Surgery’ for everyone in our community. All are welcome. Everyone in the UK has the right to free care from a GP. If you don’t have proof of ID or address, you can still register. Immigration status or nationality don’t matter – reception won’t ask for immigration documents and won’t share your information with the Home Office unless serious crime is involved.
You can see our Safe Surgeries declaration to demonstrate our practice’s commitment to minimising barriers to GP registration here: Safe Surgeries Declaration 2024
If you are not registered with a GP but need treatment at a GP surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form at reception.
For more information about registering as a temporary patient click here.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. After three months you will have to register with our practice as a permanent patient if you wish to continue to receive treatment or medication from the practice.
