Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
Register as New Patient
If you would like to register with our practice, and are within the practice area, the registration forms are available below or from the reception desk in the practice.
To register as a patient at our practice we require the NEW PATIENT REGISTRATION PACK completing and returning to the practice.
To gain online access to your medical record, ordering prescriptions and making appointments we recommend you download the NHS App and follow their instruction to register or click here to register via 'Airmid'.
Reception can also register you for online access. To do this please present to the practice with 3 forms of identification, 1 photo eg passport or driving licence, and 2 with your current address on.
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.
