Use a paper form

You can join the practice by filling in a paper form.

You can either:

When you have completed the form, please send it to the surgery by email or drop it off at reception.

It’s helpful if you bring or include a copy of your ID. This could be:

  • passport
  • birth certificate
  • HC2 certificate
  • rough sleepers’ identity badge
  • hostel or accommodation registration or mail forwarding letter

If you are new to the UK, you can find further information here in this link :

When you register, our Health Care Assistant will wish to see you to conduct a New Patient Health Check.

You will need to bring your completed form to the practice along with one form of photographic ID and a recent utility bill or bank statement for proof of address.

Upon receipt of fully completed documents please allow a minimum of 10 working days for your registration to be processed.

Please note that the law has changed to an opt out system and you will need to opt out if you do not want to become a donor.  It is important to talk to your family about your organ donation decision, as they will be asked to support your decision. If you are undecided or do not want to become an organ donor, please refer to the NHS Organ Donation website at or 0300 303 2094.

You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

Temporary patients

If you are not registered with the surgery you will be unable to see one of our doctors unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

If you are not registered but need treatment at the surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This means you can be registered with our practice and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with our 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.

If you are studying at University and were previously registered with us, you can be seen as a temporary resident.  Please contact reception for more information.
