ENSURE BOTH PRE-REG AND ONLINE MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE FORMS ARE COMPLETED
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. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.

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.
Download the Temporary Resident Registration Form
Since 5th January 2015 patients can register with a practice if they live outside the practice boundary. Maybe if you work close to a surgery or children go to school near a practice and it is more convenient to register there.
We are taking Out of Area patients but please ask at Reception and please note if you register with us and live outside of our practice boundary, we are not obliged to home visit or offer urgent services to your home address.
Pop in your postcode to see if you are in our catchment area. We do accept out of area patients but do not commit to provide home visits or urgent care to the home address for Out of Area patients.
