Register as New Patient
If you live within our practice boundary area, you can register with this practice by visiting the practice and asking for a registration form to complete. We ask that all new patients also complete a medical questionnaire so that we can have an understanding of any medical problems or medication.
We also ask that new patients sign a behaviour contract, this forms an agreement with the practice about the standards of behaviour we expect from our patients when interacting with the surgery, but also you will know what you can expect from us.
An appointment will then be given to you for a new patient check with Mrs Sian Cross our healthcare assistant.
At this point after your medical you will be registered with the practice.
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.
