Register as a New Patient
If you wish to register with this Practice you will need to come to the reception area and ask the receptionist for the relevant registration forms, which need to be completed and returned, along with any other required information as requested.
If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your forms to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
You may register with any of the GPs. All patients over the age of 75 will be allocated a named GP. We ask that all new patients registering with the Practice make an appointment with the practice nurse or healthcare assistant at West Drive or Stonecross Surgery.
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.
