Please note that the staff at the Community Reception do not have access to any of the GP Services and cannot help you other than to direct you to the emergency cover arranged for the afternoon.
If you wish to register as a patient with the Practice, please check that you are living within our practice boundary. If you are unsure, the receptionist can help you.
If you are living within our area the receptionist will ask you to complete a “registration form” and a “new patient questionnaire”. If you have a preferred GP, you can indicate this on the form. However this does not affect your rights to see any of the doctors at the practice. There is a 24 hour administrative period, after which time you may use our services..
If you change your name or address or telephone number please notify the surgery as soon as possible. A change of address may mean that you are living outside the practice boundary and we may need to ask you to register with a practice elsewhere. The receptionist will be able to advise you if the new address is within the boundary. It is your responsibility to inform any hospital where appointments might be pending, of your new details.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
This service is not currently available.
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
