Join the Practice

Catchment Area

Please check our practice boundary before registering by using the map and postcode checker opposite.

Registering with the surgery

To register online please click the link Register with a GP surgery (

Alternatively you can complete and sign a registration form available from reception or, you may complete an online registration form and medical questionnaire via the links below.

When you register, it’s helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

When completing a registration form you must complete all relevant parts of the form:

  • Full address with postcode
  • Your date of birth
  • Include your NHS number, if you know it
  • A previous address and GP must be provided unless this is your first time registering
  • Immigrants must provide a date of entry into the UK
  • All babies must be registered with an NHS number on the form
  • Service personnel - recently discharged, and people returning to the UK from abroad must provide their previous address prior to joining the Services or leaving the UK

Practice Boundary

Your address is within the catchment area.
Your address is outside of the catchment area.
Address not found.

Patients register with the Practice rather than a particular doctor. If you do have a preference of which GP you see, this can be recorded when you register. You can also ask to see a particular doctor when making an appointment. This will be accommodated where possible, but may mean waiting longer for an appointment.

  • As part of the registration process, it is NHS policy to ask for a patient's ethnicity
  • Any new patients who have recently arrived in the UK will be asked for proof of residency
  • All patients aged 16 or above will be asked for some form of personal identification (including photographic ID eg passport or driving licence) which you must present in person

We ask for identification for two reasons:

  • To prevent fraudulent registrations.
  • To reduce the duplication of patient's records across the NHS.

Temporary Registrations

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.

Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.

Change of Personal Details

If you move address, change your name or telephone number, please notify the surgery as soon as is convenient.

It is important to inform us of these changes in case we need to message, telephone or write to you.

We also recommend that you also inform any hospital or clinic that you are receiving treatment from or have been referred to.

A change of address may mean that you are outside of our Practice Area and may need to register with another doctor.

We normally ask for proof of a change in name (i.e. marriage certificate) and you will always have to provide proof if there is a discrepancy over a date of birth.

Accessing someone else’s information

As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. We can set this up for you if you are both registered with us.

To requests proxy access:

  • collect a proxy access form from reception

Linked profiles in your NHS account

Once proxy access is set up, you can access the other person’s profile in your NHS account, using the NHS App or website.

The NHS website has information about using linked profiles to access services for someone else.
