Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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. Please download a copy of our questionnaire: New Patient Questionnaire
You will be required to bring this in with some form of photo I.D. (e.g. a passport or driving license) and proof of address (e.g. Council tax bill, utility bill). If you are registering a child aged under 5, please also bring their vaccination record so that a copy may be taken to update our records.
Please note: it takes 7 days for all of your documentation to be processed and computerised, after which we are able to offer you an appointment.

A Patient Guide to GP Services
Unfortunately we are unable to accept online registrations for the time being. Apologies for the inconvenience.
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.
