NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION
To join the practice you will need to complete a purple GMS1 form. You can get this form from one of our receptionists. Please fill the form very carefully. The completed form should be returned to a receptionist who will check it through with you.
If you are on regular medication or have on going health problems you will need to make an appointment to see a doctor. Our receptionist will arrange this with you. If you do not need an appointment with a doctor you will be offered a health check with a member of our consulting team.
You can access any of the surgery's services from the day of your registration.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a local doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from this practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered with us as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to use our services but still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will need to register as a temporary patient or permanent patient.
- GP 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.
If you think we can assist you please telephone or call in during surgery opening hours.
