We are happy to accept new patients moving into our practice area. Please check with the reception staff that you live within our practice boundary which currently covers households in the following postcode areas:
To register please bring your medical card to reception along with either your passport or driving licence as forms of ID when registering.
You will be asked to make an appointment for a new patient check with the nurse. 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.
If you change name, address or telephone number, please let our receptionists know by calling or writing to us. If you move outside the practice area you may need to find a doctor in your new area. There are instructions on what to do when you move to a new area on the back of your NHS medical card.
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
From 1st April 2016 online services were extended to include access to medical records. Please contact reception for more details.

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.

All patients have a named/usual GP who will have overall responsibility for your care but it does not prevent or restrict you from seeing any other GP or nurse in the Practice.
If you wish to confirm your usual GP please ask at reception when you next attend.
If you wish to change your usual GP please inform reception of your preferred GP at the time.
We support the government's NHS zero tolerance zone campaign. GPs and their staff have the right to care for others without fear of being attacked or abused. Violent patients will be reported to the police and removed from the GP's list. We ask that you treat your GP and practice staff properly - without violence or abuse.
