Join The Practice
We are happy to accept new patients moving into our practice area. To register, you need to visit reception for the forms to fill out OR you can complete online versions below. For children aged 0-19, please use GMS1 form. Once they've been completed, please bring to reception with your required ID.
You will be asked to make an appointment for a new patient check with a clinician. This will ensure that we are aware of your medical history and any medication you are taking prior to receiving your medical notes from your previous GP.
Please ensure that you bring with you either your passport or driving licence as forms of ID when registering.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please note students residing at Storthes Hall Campus should register at the University Practice.

Please find below an up to date map of the area covered by our practice, if you live within this area and wish to register at our practice please call or drop in and speak to one of our receptionists. If you live outside this area, but still wish to be registered with us, please call us to discuss.

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.
There is good access for the disabled to all of our consultation rooms. A designated parking bay is adjacent to the surgery entrance and the surgery has a ramp and wide doors to allow for wheelchair access.
