Statement of Purpose
Patients wishing to register must live within the practice boundary. To register please ask at reception, you will be required to bring photo ID i.e. passport & confirmation of address or driving licence, NHS Number and complete a registration form which is available from Reception or can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. It is helpful to provide details of any medication and hospital treatment you may be receiving.
We will not refuse to accept a patient on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.
An appointment will be made for a new patient medical which enables us to evaluate your medical requirements, screen for common disorders and discuss medication and any concerns you may have. We then apply for your full medical records from the Health Authority.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Due to new forms being developed, please ask at Reception for your registration forms.
Please let us know of any change of name, address or telephone number. Our practice boundary is shown below, together with a list of the villages we provide services to.
Patients who move outside this area may need to register with another doctor.
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
