New Patient Registration
If you permanently live within our practice area (see map) you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your current address, which must be within our practice catchment area.
You will need to complete and return a registration form which are available from Reception, or can be completed online. Please ensure that all details are completed before returning the form to the Surgery. If any information is missing, which is required to process the application forms then we will be unable to complete the registration process. Please note a separate form is available if staying locally and requesting temporary access to our services.
You may also consider registering for SMS text communication, also available once registered for Online Services, where you can manage appointments, personal details and repeat prescription ordering. A range of admin forms, NHS advice, information about local services and more is available via our My Surgery App available on Google and Apple stores.
If you are a new patient with long term conditions that require repeat medications, we advise you make a routine appointment with a GP once registered.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Patients staying locally short term, requiring urgent medical care can access the surgery by filling out a temporary residency form. Patients are required to call the surgery on 01938 553 118 alongside completion of this form to provide details of the care required.
Further practice information is available through our Practice Leaflet.
