Patients without an NHS number will need to provide a Passport for identification.
To register with the practice you must live within the following practice area:
It can take some time to receive your medical records as we have to request them from your previous practice via NHS England.
- Each member of the family wanting to register will need to complete a separate form
- If you are unable to download the online forms, please visit the Medical Centre and collect the forms from reception
- Once you have completed the forms and have both proof of identity and proof of address please email them to the above email address
- We are unable to register a patient without proof of identity. Please contact reception if you are unable to do so.
- If you are coming to live in the UK after the 31st December 2020 you will need to have a visa to get free NHS healthcare or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK, or have permission to stay as a family member of an EEA citizen who was living in the UK before the 31st December 2020.

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 clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
