We ask for TWO forms of identification to confirm date of birth and address to accompany registration form (GMS1). Although identification is not a mandatory requirement it will help us to prevent errors when we retrieve your electronic medical record from your previous GP (if applicable).  

These may include:

  • Driving Licence or passport
  • Utility Bill (water, gas, electric, etc.)
  • Bank statement or council tax statement
  • Tenancy agreement
  • A letter from your employer

You are welcome to register if you have recently just arrived in the UK from abroad and have not had a GP in this country before, where possible please provide evidence of status i.e. Visa/residence permit/work permit or passport and one of the above.

Once we have accepted you onto our list you will be registered with the Practice and may consult any doctor. However, for both new and existing patients we suggest it is best to try to remain with one doctor for any one illness, and we believe it is very much to your advantage if you regard one of the doctors as your regular doctor, especially if you suffer from a chronic illness or are on long-term medication. It may not always be possible to see your regular doctor due to absences from the Practice.

Newborn Babies

Register your baby with your GP as early as possible in case you need our help. Come to the surgery and fill in a registration form or simply complete the form via the link below. Please bring the baby's red book, birth certificate or hospital discharge summary as we will need your baby's NHS number.

It's important to register your child with a GP as most children will be unwell at some point and being registered with a GP will make seeing a doctor much quicker and more convenient when you need it. Most parents and carers register their children with their own GP practice.

Registration Form

Temporary 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.

Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.

Accessing someone else’s information

As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. We can set this up for you if you are both registered with us.

To requests proxy access:

  • collect a proxy access form from reception

Linked profiles in your NHS account

Once proxy access is set up, you can access the other person’s profile in your NHS account, using the NHS App or website.

The NHS website has information about using linked profiles to access services for someone else.
