Registering with Us

  • Registration will need to be completed before you can book an appointment with us.
  • Please allow five working days from submitting the form for registration to be completed, we will send a text to confirm you are registered with us. 
  • You will remain registered with your previous GP until you are fully registered with us. We cannot issue any repeat prescriptions until we receive confirmation of your past medical history and medication so do ask your previous GP for a supply.
  • Our Patient Participation Group (Communicare) may contact you after your registration. You will be given the option to opt out of this contact on our registration form.

Please upload copies of the following documents:

  • A copy of your photo identification (passport, driving license or EU Identity card). Only upload this if you registered for online services in step 3.

I do not want to register online

If you prefer not to register online (see above) please complete the following steps:

Visit the surgery with the following information: WE REQUIRE (minimum) the GMS1 form PLUS the New Patient Questionnaire PLUS the right hand side of your prescription from your previous practice (if you are on repeated medication[s]). We are unable to register you if any of the forms are missing or incomplete.

All forms can be downloaded using the links above, or ask reception for a paper copy.

When you return the completed forms our reception staff will check them through for any missing information. Please avoid bringing your forms in between 12noon to 2pm as there is only one receptionist on duty and she cannot leave the desk.

Temporary Residents

The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice Catchment area should medical advice be required. In this instance persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.

To register you will need to bring your passport and complete our Temporary Resident Registration (GMS3) form which is available from reception, or the GMS3 form can be downloaded here.

Valid forms of ID

To register we require photo ID (passport, drivers licence or EU Identity card).

If you are homeless or of no fixed abode, then although it is helpful to have photo ID you can register without any.

Any other ID such as an HC2 Certificate, Rough Sleepers' Identity badge, Hostel registration or mail forwarding letter would also be helpful but again we will register you even if you don't have these. As we know it is more important that you can access health care when you need it.

If you are unsure on how to register, please ask at reception and they can help you to complete the registration process.
