New Patient Registration
Joining our Surgery
At present, we are accepting new patients.
Please either come into surgery to collect or download and print your new patient pack (found below), which includes short forms to be filled out and an informative patient leaflet.
Once completed, please drop the forms back in to us. New Registrations can take 48-72 working hours to be processed. Once your Registration has been successfully uploaded we will notify you by text message.
Alternatively you can register with the surgery via the online forms linked above.
New Patient Pack
If you would like to check whether you are resident within our Practice area and so eligible to register with us a Practice then please enter your postcode below.
Those who visit the UK from overseas must pay for their care when they are in England.
In 2015 changes were made to how the NHS charges overseas visitors for healthcare so the NHS does not lose out on income for the services these patients have received.
If you’re currently staying with a friend or family member within our GP surgery area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months, you can ask to register as a temporary resident. You can find more information on registering as a temporary resident on the NHS website.
If you want to register as a temporary resident at our GP surgery, please contact us and we will send you the relevant registration form.
Named Accountable GP
The NHS requires that every patient is allocated a named accountable GP. All registered patients have been allocated a named GP, and any newly registered patients will be allocated a named GP within 21 days of registering. This is for administrative purposes only and you retain the right to see any of our GPs. You will still be able to book an appointment with the GP of your choice.
What does ‘accountable’ mean?
The named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of all medical services and ensures they are delivered to each of their patients where required.
This new arrangement has been introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that work is carried out on their behalf.
Does the requirement mean 24-hour responsibility for patients?
No. The named GP will not:
- take on responsibility for the work of other doctors or health professionals,
- take on 24-hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours,
- be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient.
Can patients choose their own named GP?
Patients have been allocated a named GP by the practice. However, if a patient requests a particular GP, reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate their preference.
Do patients have to see the named GP when they book an appointment with the practice?
No. Patients are free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.
If you would like to know who your named accountable GP is, or you have a preference as to which GP you are allocated please contact the Surgery for more information.
