We welcome you to register with us if you live within the practice boundary (see map below) or telephone reception (01223 651020) to check your eligibility.

Adults and children both require the same forms to be completed and signed by applicant, parent or guardian. The only difference is that Children (aged 0-14) have a different Health Questionnaire.

Practice Boundary

The practice boundary’s purpose is to facilitate visits to your home if you are ill.

New to the UK or no NHS number?
If you have never been registered in the UK before you will not have an NHS number. In which case we will need the date you first arrived in the UK, your current address and any previous UK addresses.

It is important to realise that if you register with us but do not live locally, we will be unlikely to be able to visit if you deem that necessary.  In these occasions we recommend that you call 111 who will advise you of the most appropriate route of care for your needs.  Please remember, however that if you feel that you have a medical emergency, you can always call 999 for assistance.

Temporary Registrations - Telephone 01223 651020 to check availability
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.

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.

Registration Guide

If, like most students, you spend more weeks of the year at your college address than your family's address, you need to register with a GP near your college as soon as possible.

That way you can receive emergency care if you need it, and access health services quickly and easily while you're at college.

This is especially important if you have an ongoing health condition, particularly one that needs medication, such as asthmadiabetes or epilepsy
