How to register

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.

Please note that the Practice does not accept out of area registrations.

New Patient Registration

This surgery does not issue repeat (on-going) Benzodiazepines or Z-drug prescriptions. Patients who are taking this type of medication and wish to register with us will be offered a gradual reduction programme. Patients taking regular Benzodiazepines or Z-drugs will be asked to attend a medication review with the GP where a reduction programme will be agreed. Patients will be provided with support to stop taking these medications. Agreement with this policy is a strict requirement for registration with the practice. This policy follows national guidance to ensure the safe use of these medications.

You can register by either:

We do ask patients for supporting documentation as it can:

  • helps us to find medical records or transfer them from your current GP
  • confirm that you live in the surgery’s area or practice boundary

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.

If you take regular medication, please ensure you provide your repeat prescription slip from your previous GP practice.

All new patients who register with the surgery and take regular medication will need to book an appointment for a medication review.

Registering Children

Children under 16 need to be registered by their parent or guardian. This usually means filling in a separate form. You may also be asked to provide a form of ID to prove that you’re their parent or guardian.

If you have a personal child health record (red book) from the birth of your child, it will help to provide this.

Temporary Patients

If you are not registered with the surgery you will be unable to see one of our doctors unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

If you are not registered but need treatment at the surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This means you can be registered with our practice and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with our practice.
