We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
You can register by either:
- completing a form available from reception
- downloading and printing a registration form to complete by hand and bring to the surgery.
To register with our practice, please visit reception with proof of address, proof of identification, and your passport.
Acceptable identification includes:
- Birth Certificate
- Proof of address
- HC2 Certificate
- Rough sleepers’ identity badge
- Hostel Registration/mail forwarding letter.
Until we have seen your identification you will not be registered at the practice.
For further information on registering with your GP, please visit the NHS website.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.
If you are not registered with the surgery you will be unable to see one of our doctors unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.
If you are not registered but need treatment at the surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This means you can be registered with our practice and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with our practice.

In April 2015, changes were made to the way the NHS charges overseas visitors for NHS hospital care. These changes also affect some former residents of the UK. The changes were made so that the NHS does not lose out on income from migrants, visitors or former residents of the UK, who may be required to pay for their hospital treatment costs while in England.
