How to register

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. Please click here to view our catchment area.

You can register by:


Please complete a Registration form (GMS1) AND a health questionnaire (please check below which one is most appropriate for your registration) which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.

NOTE: Please ensure you complete both forms with as much information as possible or your registration may be delayed.

Registration form (GMS1)

Health Questionnaire for patients aged 16 and above

Health Questionnaire for children aged under 16 years

Health Questionnaire for Care Home Residents

Please put your completed forms in our letter box and we will register you upon receipt. Please be aware that registration may take up to 14 working days to complete. If you feel you may run out of medications before your registration with us is actioned, please request these from your current surgery before submitting your registration forms.

We require individual forms to be completed for each member of your household.

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

You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.

Temporary registration

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.

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.

The GMS1 forms are currently being updated. If you wish to opt out, please state this on your form.
