Join The Practice
All patients will need to have completed the GMS1 registration form and relevant medical questionnaire prior to being able to book an appointment, please find these forms below. We will not accept one form, both must be submitted along with your NHS number for us to process your registration. (NHS number not applicable to patients who have never been seen in the UK). Please complete the registration forms and drop these off at the surgery - it can take up to 48 hours to process registration forms and you should ensure you have a sufficient supply of your regular medication from your previous practice to cover the transitional period.
You may be asked to make an appointment for a new patient check with the practice nurse, practice pharmacist and/or a doctor at a later date. Please find below a copy of our practice leaflet.
Filling in the forms does not guarantee registration as we may refuse your application to join our list if:
- You are outside the practice boundary
- You have previously been removed from the practice list, for example due to an irreconcilable breakdown in the relationship with a member of the practice team.
- You are under 16 years old and are not registering with an accompanying parent or guardian.
Please CLICK HERE to check if you are living within our practice boundary before filling out a registration form.
Allocated Named Accountable GP
We are required to allocate a named accountable GP to each patient. As a new patient you will be assigned and informed of your named allocated GP. This is a contract requirement and does not prevent you from seeing the GP of your choice at the practice.
If you have a preference as to which GP you are allocated to, we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
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.

There are two parking bays designated for disabled persons attending the surgery. There is level access from here to the front door of the surgery which is an automatic sliding door. The surgery also has a ground floor accessible toilet. One row of the seating in the waiting room is raised and has arms to make it easier for patients with mobility problems to get up and down.
If you require any assistance whilst at the surgery please ask the receptionist or make your needs known to one of the practice team and we will be happy to help.
Please do not park in the parking bays designated for disabled users unless you have a genuine need.
