The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it takes 6-8 weeks to receive your medical records from your previous doctors once registered we would ask you to make a New Patient appointment with the Healthcare Assistant.
You are welcome to register here as long as you are in our catchment area. This can be confirmed from your address we ask that when registering you prove your address by bringing a utility bill in your name and address. We also require one form of photographic ID.
Benzodiazepines & Hypnotics Medication
This surgery does not issue Repeat (on-going) Benzodiazepine or Hypnotics prescriptions to newly registered patients.
Patients who are taking this type of medication & wish to register with us will be offered an 8 week reduction & then stop programme.
Agreement with this Programme is a strict requirement for registration with the Surgery.
Existing patients taking regular Benzodiazepines or Hypnotics will be asked to attend surgery for a medication review with the GP.
Changes to Personal Details
Please inform the reception staff of any change of personal details e.g. name, address, telephone number etc.
It is also important that you inform local hospitals where you are undergoing medical treatment, as they will also need to update their medical records in order to keep in contact with you.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
