We are currently accepting New Patients. (New patients must reside within our Boundary Area. To see if you live within this area, please click here; Boundary Area)
If you do live within our Boundary Area and would like to join our practice please download and print off these 2 forms: New Patient Registration Form & New Patient Questionnaire
Once completed, please drop BOTH forms into us and we will arrange a New Patient Check appointment for you.
From 1st April 2015, all of our patients have been allocated a named GP. Your named GP 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 may currently choose to do so. Neither does it guarantee you will see your named GP every time you visit the surgery or give you priority access over other patients to your named GP. It is important to note that access to GPs will be via our normal appointment system and will continue to be subject to the availability of individual doctors. We aim to offer “GP of choice” appointments where possible. Please ask a member of our reception team for more information.
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 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.
