Registering as a Patient
You can register by completing the online registration form, please follow the link.
Please ensure you complete the GMS1 form in full.
Before completing the registration form, please review whether your address falls into our practice area. We are unable to accept patients who live outside the boundary. You can check your postcode with our postcode checker:
Once you have been registered, we would like to invite all adults to book a welcome check with our team.
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.
Registering after leaving the armed forces
You may have recently left the forces and wish to register with us. You will need to live within the practice boundary or already live with a family who are registered with us. When you leave the forces, you should be given the option of receiving your medical records for you to pass on to the GP Practice. Alternatively, you will be asked to complete the Military Medical Record Request Form (see below link), which should be handed in when you register with us for us to request your records from the military.
Requests for military medical records can take up to 6 months for us to receive your notes so we would advise that you get copies of your records before you leave so we can merge these with your NHS records.
When you register, please give us your enlistment date and discharge date from the armed forces.
