New Patients

Quote / Testimonial:

Please be aware that we are currently experiencing a high volume of registrations and this may take some time to complete.

We would therefore recommend that you order your medication from your existing GP practice in order to make sure you do not go without your medication.

How To Register With Us:

Please contact our reception team on 01249 444343 or use our Online Registration Form. Once this has been completed, we will send you a confirmation text/email or letter to state which GP you are registered with.

  • If you have a preference to be registered with a particular Doctor we will try to comply but it may not always be possible to accommodate all requests.
  • If you require repeat medication or have a problem that requires medical attention, please make an appointment to see your doctor at the time of notification of successful registration.
  • Please be aware that if you are an existing patient and you move to a new postal address outside our catchment area, we are no longer able to keep you registered with our GP surgery.  We would therefore recommend you re-register with a local GP surgery as soon as possible. 

Catchment Area

Temporary Patient Registrations

You can register temporarily with a GP surgery while away from home for work, study or on holiday. You’ll remain registered with your permanent GP surgery.

If you are not registered with a GP you will be unable to see one unless you have an emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

If you are not registered with a GP but need emergency treatment at a GP Surgery, you will need to complete a temporary registration form.

If you have run out of medication whilst on holiday, you can contact your regular GP practice as they can send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy local to where you are staying.

You can be registered as a temporary patient from 14 days 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 our 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.
