Register as New Patient
To register with the practice, just bring you medical card to reception. Please ensure you have signed it. If you do not have a medical card reception staff will be able to give you a form to complete. If you have lost your medical card or been living outside the UK for more than a year you will be given Form HS200.
If you are registering in the UK for the first time you will need to complete Form HS22X. There will also be a brief new patient questionnaire.
The practice can accept patients up to a 10 mile radius of the surgery.
Change of Personal Details
Please let us know if any of your personal details change such as name, address, telephone number or marital status to enable us to update our records.
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.

Disabled Patient Facilities
There are reserved car parking spaces for the disabled near the front door and wheelchair access to the building is via a ramp near the front entrance. The ramp also allows access to the treatment room from outside in an emergency. Patient services are provided at ground floor level, however, a lift is provided to access other floors.
A disabled patients' WC is provided near the front entrance and another is available on the first floor. If access proves difficult to any of our disabled patients we would be happy to consider any suggestions for improvement.
Communication with the practice
Do you struggle to hear practice staff at our reception or on the phone?
Please inform our reception staff and we can organise additional communication options for you.
The practice can provide BSL interpreting services if this would be helpful during your appointment.
All of our staff have been trained to use BSL fingerprint spelling.
Please feel free to contact the practice manager if you have any further suggestions to improve our services.
