Register as New Patient
When registering at the practice please allow plenty of time as you will be required to complete a comprehensive medical questionnaire. If you can bring along supporting information as to who you are and where you live it would really help in the processing of your registration.
The forms can also be completed online below.
Please note you will not usually be allowed to make a routine appointment to see a nurse or doctor until your registration is complete. This is in part due to the clinical staff not being able to access your medical records on-line until they are released from your last/current GP.

Change of Personal Details
Please let us know as soon as possible of any change of name or address.
Unless you do this the Health Authority may remove your name from our list of patients without letting you know.
The surgery can be entered via the wheelchair ramp situated at the back of the surgery where a car park is provided.
As we are located on the first floor of Princes Court, there is a lift for patients unable to negotiate stairs.
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.
