Out of Area Registration will be considered on an individual patient basis. This type of registration allows you to register outside of our Practice area but does NOT allow patients to receive a home visit. Home visits for these patients should be arranged through NHS 111
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.
New Patient Registration
Please ask at reception for registration form - please take ID with your addres with you when handing in your completed forms.
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.
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.
