If you wish to register with us, please visit the surgery to collect the appropriate forms. Please also complete the medical questionnaire form which is linked below.

You can also pre-register online. If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the “Send” button to mail your form to us. We also ask for ID (driving licence/passport) and some form of address verification (utility bill/bank statement).

As part of the registration process, you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this too which you may print off.

Temporary Registration

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.
