How to register

If you live in our practice area of CA14 postcodes and would like to register with us, please call and make an appointment. You can fill in the registration form online, or by downloading the form. Alternatively you can collect a new patient pack from the reception desk.

Completing and sending in a registration form does not automatically imply that you will be registered at the Practice. Please book a registration appointment on 01900 64866.

If you have any information or communication needs please contact reception

All new patients are required to undertake a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking. If you do not attend your registration appointment we cannot register you.

When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.

When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct. You will also have to bring a form of ID to the registration appointment. This can be either a passport, a driving licence, or 2 utility bills showing name and address.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

Temporary registration

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.
