New Patient Registration
If you live within our practice area and would like to register as a patient, please complete the registration forms available from reception or below, along with a new patient questionnaire, and return them as soon as possible to the surgery.
Please complete a GMS1 form, and a new patient registration form, for each person. Please complete and sign both forms. You can complete the registration form online using the link below for adult and child registration, however the GMS1 form must be printed, completed by hand and returned to the practice.
We would also ask you to bring along 2 forms of ID such as a passport/photo driving licence and a utility bill. ID is not necessary for children.
Upon receipt of your registration documents we may invite you to come into the surgery for a health check.
Once you are registered, you will have a named GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice. Please contact the practice if you wish to know who your named GP is.
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. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
In accordance with current recommendations, all new patients should present two forms of identification. This is required to reduce and prevent fraudulent attempts to obtain or misuse NHS care. Overseas visitors may be asked for additional information to prove NHS entitlement.
One form of identity must ideally be photographic such as:
- Drivers Licence;
- Official ID card from Public Services body; or
- Student matriculation card (current year)
Other documents for proof of residency that are acceptable are:
- Recent utility bill (within last 3 months)
- Council Tax document
- Television Licence
- Payslips (last two months)
- Rent book/agreement (Public Body or Private Landlord)
- Bank Statement (Name and address section only required)
- Solicitors Letter (Clearly showing name and address)
If unable to provide photographic evidence then you must present one of the above and one of the following:
- Birth Certificate
- Marriage Certificate
- Divorce Annulment Papers.
Please be aware that the above list is not exhaustive and staff are entitled to ask for further proof if required. Please note you will not be registered with the practice if you cannot provide the documents required to prove NHS eligibility.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a GP but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from your 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 contact us on 0116 323 2020. (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. We will take some details from you including name, address, date of birth, current GP details and NHS Number (If known). Please note that we will not register you as a temporary patient unless you need an appointment.
