Register With Us
Register as New Patient
Anybody who lives within our catchment area may register with us. It's helpful if you can bring proof of identity (preferably your passport) and proof of address (for example, a bank statement or utilities bill) as this will speed up the process, but it's not necessary - anyone can register without ID.
Registration takes place Monday to Friday between 09:30 and 18:30 and 09:00 to 11:00 Saturday. Although you can register between these times the surgery is less busy after 18:00 and on Saturday making the process faster.
At registration you will be given a brief health check which involves answering some questions about your health and lifestyle and recording your blood pressure, height and weight.
You can download, print and complete a GSM1 Registration Form below, at your leisure, before you come in to register. Alternatively you can use the online pre-registration forms. Once you have completed the forms, bring them to the practice. It is also helpful if you can bring some ID, but this isn’t a requirement. Examples are:
- your proof of address (i.e. utility bill, council tax or bank statement etc) and
- a photo ID (e.g. Driving License or Passport).
For children (under 5 yrs) we also need to see the Birth Certificate and recommend that you bring the child’s Redbook
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.
