Register as New Patient
If you live within our catchment area (see map opposite) and wish to register please enquire at reception. You will need to bring proof of your identity and details of your previous GP (if applicable)
Visitors to the UK may not be eligible for some NHS services - please check with reception.
- Monday, Wednesday: 09:30 - 12:00 and 14:30 - 18:00
- Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 09:30 - 12:00 and 14:30 - 17:00
Please note we do not accept registrations outside of these times.
If you have a child under six that you wish to register, please remember to bring their hand-held records (red book) or written confirmation of their immunisations as this will assist our health visitor.
You can download, print and complete a GSM1 Registration Form below, at your leisure, before you come in to register. Alternatively you can use the online pre-registration forms.
Once you have completed the forms, bring them to the practice. It is also helpful if you can bring some ID, but this isn’t a requirement. Examples are:
- your proof of address (i.e. utility bill, council tax or bank statement etc) and
- a photo ID (e.g. Driving License or Passport).
For children (under 5 yrs) we also need to see the Birth Certificate and recommend that you bring the child’s Redbook
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.
