How to register

Permanent Registration

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. Please see map for our catchment area

Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery.

You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number. However we do ask for this as it helps us match your previous GP records.


Register as a temporary resident with a GP?

If you are not registered with a GP but need to see one, you can get emergency treatment at any GP surgery. If you need treatment for more than 14 days, you will need to register with that GP surgery as a temporary or permanent patient. To register as a temporary resident in England, you can find a GP near you.

You can register as a temporary resident if you plan to live near the GP surgery for up to 3 months. After 3 months you will have to apply to register with that surgery as a permanent resident. You can register temporarily with a GP surgery while away from home for work, study or on holiday. You’ll remain registered with your permanent GP surgery. The temporary GP surgery will pass details of any treatment you have to your permanent GP surgery. They will add the information to your medical records.

Try to have the following information with you when you see a temporary GP for the first time:

  • details of any medical conditions you have
  • details of medical conditions you’ve had in the past
  • the name of any medicines you’re currently taking
  • details of anything you’re allergic to
  • contact details for your permanent or previous GP surgery
  • your NHS number

Step 1 – Complete the registration form – You can register by completing a form available from reception or download the form here.

New patient health checks

All newly-registered patients over 5 years of age are advised to make an appointment with a nurse for a new patient check. This consultation is to check the blood pressure, take a full personal and family history and advise on any health issues you wish to discuss.

Please bring a urine sample. Although this health check is offered for up to a year after registering it is opportune to have it soon so that it is not overlooked.
