Register With Us
Registration – register in person or on-line
You can register on-line by using this link: https://gp-registration.nhs.uk/E85003. This is the easiest and quickest method. It's even easier if you already have the NHS App on your phone.
Alternatively, you can register in person at the surgery. You will need to fill in a short form called GMS1. We also have a Pre-registration Form and Health Questionnaire Form (scroll down this page) which help us to collect information about your health. You can complete these forms on-line or pick up the forms from the practice. It can take a while for your previous medical records to arrive so the information is helpful if you need support straight away.
When you come to the practice the first time, it is helpful if you can bring some ID, but this isn’t a requirement. Examples are:
- your proof of address (i.e. utility bill, council tax or bank statement etc) or
- a photo ID (e.g. Driving License or Passport).
For children (under 5 yrs) we also need to see the Birth Certificate and recommend that you bring the child’s Redbook
These documents help us to make sure all your personal details are accurate and that we have matched you to your previous medical record.
How long will registration take?
Once we have all these documents it can take up to 3 to 4 working days for your registration to be approved and processed, and for your online service to become active.
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.
