New Patient Registration
To register with the practice you need to be ordinarily resident in the UK and living within our catchment area. You can make an appointment once your registration has been accepted and approved.
Proof of ID is required if you would like access to online services - which we recommend. This will need to be photo ID (valid passport, current photo driving licence, Identity Card).
Please bring the ID when you attend the practice to complete registration.
When registering a child or young person under 16 years, please note that we highly recommend that all close family members are also registered with the practice. This allows us to look after your family's health in the best way possible.
You can start the registration process by submitting the form online (and sending the Health Questionnaire via email). You will need to come to the surgery to sign the paperwork. Please bring ID so we can provide access to online services.
Live within boundary area?
To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.
Registration step by step
If you are within our catchment area and would like to register with the practice please download, read and complete the forms below.
You must visit the surgery to show proof of identity (driving licence / passport) and address (utility bill/rental agreement/bank statement) in order that we can provide you with online services.
If you are visiting the UK on a working visa, reception staff will need to see this. Registration documents need to be completed for each family member; children under the age of 13yrs have different forms.
Please do not be offended if reception staff are unable to complete your registration due to insufficient documentation.
Once registered you will be able to make appointments – this may take up to one week.
The New Patient Health Questionnaire will let us know about any illnesses you may have had and provide us with a view of your general state of health. You will also be able to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have. Please bring with you any medication that you are taking.

Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.
To register as a temporary patient, please contact the practice. We do not have to accept all temporary patients and we may decide to offer emergency treatment instead. We cannot register you as a temporary patient if you live in the area and are already registered at another practice.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months if you are staying with someone who is already registered at our practice. 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 the practice.
