We will ask you for proof of identity, this must be presented in person - please select the link to refer to our 'registration policy'.

Whilst not legally required it is our practice policy to confirm the identity of adults registering with us by checking photo ID and proof of address, please provide this when registering. If you email your registration to us or register online please call into the practice with your proof.

Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice and you will ususally be sent a new medical card. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice.

Temporary 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.
