Who Can Register?

If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from a photo identification document (eg passport, driving licence) and your address (eg a recent utility bill, bank statement). If you cannot provide either of these please speak to reception.

Out of Area Patients

For our Patients who are registered and wish to remain with us but move to a location outside of our practice boundary, please understand that we are happy for you to remain registered with us but please note home visiting will have to be agreed in advance with their Doctor.

Home visiting outside of the practice boundary is not within our NHS contract and therefore a discretionary arrangement.   The NHS Out of Area GP home visiting service is operated through NHS 111. This is the same arrangement for patients who wish to register with us but already reside outside of our practice boundary. Please be advised in some circumstances the GP will make a decision based on the patients medical needs as some services will not be available for patients to be referred to when living outside of the borough that service serves.

Out of Area Request

Your Named GP

The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. Individual patients will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice.

For convenience if you have a medical card your accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.

Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

Temporary Services

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 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.
