Register as New Patient
We will be delighted to welcome you as a patient. Please check that you live within our Practice boundary area (see map below).
If you are unsure whether your home is covered within the boundary map, please telephone the Practice on 01446 772383 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
How To Register
Please complete the following documents:
- Online Registration Form
- GMS 1 Form (see link)
- My Health Online Registration (optional - see below)
The GMS 1 form needs to be printed out and completed before you bring it to the surgery with a copy of your repeat prescription from your previous surgery (if applicable). The signed GMS1 form and previous repeat prescription can be scanned and sent via email to the surgery - email@example.com Please note until both the online registration form and the GMS1 form have been received we can not complete your registration with the practice. Please do not post these forms as they contain very sensitive, personal patient identifiable information.
Please ensure that you complete your NHS number on the GMS 1 form, as the Practice cannot register you unless we have this. If you are unsure of your number, please contact your current practice who will provide it.
If you require any further information regarding registration, please speak to a member of staff or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in a clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
