Register as a New Patient
When you register at the practice you will be asked to complete a registration form and a new patient questionnaire. The registration form (or completed medical card) provides information that allows us to obtain your medical notes from your previous doctor and will add your name to the list of one of our doctors.
Although it may take a few weeks for your notes to arrive you can see a doctor here as soon as you wish. The patient questionnaire will give us some important information about your health needs before your notes arrive which helps us to help you.
Links to the online forms can be found below.
Following completion of your registration form, we request that you come to the practice to sign & verify that the personal details are correct. This will then enable us to make an appointment for you for a New Patient Health Check, with one of our Practice Nurses/ HCA's.
It is imperative that each registration form is fully completed. If not complete this may delay your registration at the practice
Please note - you registration will not be activated until you have visited the surgery with proof of your ID:
- photographic identification
- proof of your address
When you register you will be allocated to the list of a doctor in the practice, but because the partners work jointly you may see ANY doctor within the practice, not just the one you are registered with.
This means that you have the choice of seeing different people at different times. Each of our doctors has individual interests and skills. One doctor may suggest you consult with another colleague for a particular problem, or obtain their advice during your consultation, if they are available. In this way we hope to provide you with a fully comprehensive medical service.
However, we do ask that if you are seeing one doctor about a particular problem, that you continue your treatment for that condition with that doctor.
The practice covers an area of approximately 2 to 3 miles radius and includes many of the surrounding villages.
If you have any doubt whether you live within our practice area please ask one of our reception staff for guidance.

Changes to Personal Details
Please let us know if you move or change your telephone number as soon as possible by completing this form. If you move out of the practice area we will not be able to continue to care for you and alternative arrangements will be necessary.
Remember to tell us if details for other members of your family have also changed.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
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.
