New Patients

Register as New Patient

Here at Knowle House Surgery we cover Crownhill, Eggbuckland and Manadon, as well as adjoining parts of Hartley, Derriford and Whitleigh. 

Our Tamerton Surgery covers the whole of Tamerton Foliot village.

If you are unsure if you live within our area ask at reception or use the handy postcode checker on this page. 

If you decide to register with us, you will be asked if you are within our catchment area, as we are currently not taking out of area registrations. 

If you are within area, we will kindly ask you to fill out a GMS1 Patient Regsitration form, along with a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.

Catchment Area

How to register

  1. Download the GMS1 Patient Registration Form, and the relevant Patient questionnair (Newborn, Child, or Adult). 
  2. Complete and hand in to reception or email to d-ccg.knowlehousesurgery@nhs.net with two forms of ID.

Your registration will not be processed until you have provided two forms of ID which have been confirmed with our operational admin team.

Registrations can take upto 14 days to process, and during busy periods may take longer, but we will aim to complete as soon as we are able and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

You are able to collect a registration form from reception, however we are strongly discouraging footfall within the surgery during this time. 

If you do come into the surgery, please ensure you wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer station. 

 We are currently not accepting any out of area registrations. 

GMS1 form can be found in the long banner below. The patient questionnaire can be found beneath. 

Out of Area Registrations

For the foreseeable future we are not accepting out of area registrations. This is due to a significant increase in patient numbers and therefore workload.   

We strive to meet an excellent patient experience, while also safely managing staff and GP workload, which is why we have made this difficult decision in order to protect patients, service quality and staff well-being. 

If you feel your application has extenuating circumstances, you are able to appeal in writing by filling out the appeals form here or by collecting an appeals form from reception. Your appeal will be discussed at partner level in line with the GMS guidance.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging time. 

Temporary Patient 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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
