New Patients

Register as a New Patient

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete our “New Patient” registration forms available at reception or online below.

The surgery accepts patients living within a mile radius of the surgery. Patients moving more than 1.5 miles from the surgery will not be able to remain with the practice.

On the form, you will be able to say which practitioner you would prefer to see. However, you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP. We have a team of highly qualified and experienced practitioners who can help you.

New patients are required to have a health check on joining. This allows us to record any relevant information while we wait for your records to be transferred from your previous GP.

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.

Disabled Patient Facilities

There is suitable access for the disabled and wheelchair users. Toilet facilities for the disabled are also provided as well as nappy changing facilities.

Parking spaces for disabled patients are reserved at the front of the surgery at either side of the main entrance.

Non-English Speakers

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:

Named GP for All Patients

It is a contractual requirement to provide all patients with a named accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to the patient.

The named accountable GP for this practice is Dr Imran Zaman

Dr Zaman will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
