Registering as a Patient

We welcome new NHS patients.

To register as a patient:
  1. Ensure your place of residence falls within our catchment area (see map). 
  2. You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) which can be obtained from the surgery. Alternative you can download and print a GMS1 form.
    • If possible please bring ID such as a passport, driving licence or birth certificate, and proof of address such as a utility bill or rental agreement. If you are unable to provide these documents please tell our receptionist.
    • To obtain your previous GP records without delay, we will need your NHS number (this has 10 digits and is not the same as your National Insurance number. You can obtain it from your current GP).
    • If you are registering a child you will be asked to provide evidence that you have parental responsibility, we would expect the person with responsibility to be registered with the child.(Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 places a statutory duty on the NHS to safeguard and promote the welfare of children)
3.  In all cases please download and complete our relevant health questionnaire -
4.  Please also download the forms below. 
5.  You are required to attend the surgery in person to register. This includes children.

NHS Patients Resident Elsewhere in the UK (Temporary Residents)

Patients visiting from other parts of the UK may be seen as ‘Temporary residents’.
You will be asked to complete a form at the practice which includes details about your usual registered GP so that we can liaise with them about your care if necessary.
Please tell the reception team how long you expect to be in our practice area.

Registering When You're Homeless

If you are homeless and would like to register with a GP surgery, find out about how you can do that here.

Visitors From Abroad Not Usually Resident in the UK

If you are not normally resident in the UK, you may wish to be seen as a Temporary patient. Alternatively you can be seen on a Private Patient basis, fees will be payable. You may be able to claim back the fees from your travel insurance. You will be supplied with a receipt.
Prescriptions and any subsequent tests or X-rays will also incur additional fees.

New Patient Practice Boundary

We can only accept new patients who are within our inner boundary area. Patients can register as new patients within the ‘inner boundary’ and existing patients who move within the ‘outer boundary’ may remain registered at the surgery, as specified on the following map.
 
To check if you are in our area enter your FULL postcode into our Postcode Checker:

 

or you can see if you are within our boundary area below:

Please note that every care has been taken in the preparation of information on this Postcode Mapping Tool, however there may be instances where the Postcode Mapping Tool does not include your location even though it is within our Practice Boundary. An example of this may be new housing developments where the postcodes are not yet included on Google.

In these circumstances please check on the Practice map above for more details, or contact the Practice.

All Patients - Locations Outside our Area

If you are moving outside our area

GPs work together with District Nurses, Community Mental Care Nurses, and Terminal Care Nurses. For this reason we need to be strict about the area covered.

We cannot, therefore, take on new patients, or retain existing patients, outside our stated area. If you move, even slightly outside our area, you must register with a practice in your new catchment area. Existing patients who move within the ‘outer boundary’ may remain registered at the surgery, as specified on the outer boundary map below.
