Register with Practice

New Patient Registration

We welcome new Patients from within our catchment area and are happy to register you. Please use the catchment area map tool opposite to check.

For any new Patients that wish to register we are encouraging you to download the forms, complete and send to us. Alternatively you can come into the Practice and collect the forms from us.

If you are already a registered patient and have moved out of our area, you will need to find another Practice to register with in your area.

Allocation to a named GP

You will be allocated a named GP. However, you will be able to sepak to any GP at the Practice and are not limited to speak to only one Doctor.

Supporting Documents

You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS Number but it might help for one of the following reasons:

  • To confirm you live in our catchment area
  • To confirm we are registering the correct person
  • To check the Health Authority have the correct information
  • To prevent fraud (to stop people registering with many practices)

 

 

However if you do not have any ID we will accept your registration, it might help if you have one or more of the following:       

  • Passport
  • Birth Certificate
  • HC2 Certificate
  • ID card for European Countries
  • Rough Sleepers’ Identity Badge
  • Hostel or Accommodation Registration or mail forwarding letter

 

If you are homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend’s address, a day centre or the GP Surgery address.

Immigration status or nationality doesn't matter - Reception won't ask for immigration documents and won't share your information with the Home Office unless serious crime is involved.

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 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 as a Patient at 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.

If English Is Not Your First Language

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.
