New Patients: We are currently accepting new patients

Welcome

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.  As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice, you will be invited to make an appointment with your doctor if you need a prescription for medication you have been receiving from your previous surgery. 

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information on 01268 448200.

How to register as a new patient

Please complete the following registration forms (a separate form for each person registering).  Alternatively you could send us a text to 07840 208638 and our registration team will be in touch with you or come to the surgery to collect registration forms from reception.

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.  You must be staying in our practice area or residing with someone who is registered at our practice.  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.
