How to register with us
Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. It’s free to register.
You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
GP surgeries are usually the first contact if you have a health problem. We can treat many conditions and give health advice. We can also refer you to other NHS services.
Registering with us
You need to complete the registration form to register you or someone else you are registering on their behalf such as a child, if you are registering a child please submit their immunisation records too so we can ensure they are up to date with their baby immunisations. You can attach this and email this to us.
You do not need proof of ID to register with a GP, but it might help if you have one or more of the following:
- birth certificate
- HC2 certificate
- rough sleepers’ identity badge
- hostel or accommodation registration or mail forwarding letter
If you’re homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend’s address, a day centre or the GP surgery address.
If you need help registering with a GP surgery
If you need help registering or filling in forms, call us and let us know.
Reasons why we may refuse to register you?
- -you have been removed from our register before or
- -it’s a long way from your home and you need extra care, for example home visits
Using a GP surgery you’re not registered with
You can contact any GP surgery if you need treatment and:
- you’re away from home
- you’re not registered with a GP surgery
- it’s a medical emergency
You might need to register as a temporary resident or permanent patient if you need treatment for more than 14 days.
You can register as a temporary resident for up to 3 months. You’ll still be registered with your usual GP surgery if you have one.
Registering with a GP under the Mental Capacity Act
The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) is designed to protect and empower people over 16 who are unable to make decisions about their care and treatment.
If a person is unable to register with a GP because they cannot make decisions about their care, registration can be done by:
- a relative
- the main carer
- a lasting power of attorney
- a person appointed by a court under the Mental Capacity Act
- We are accepting new patients on our list. Please download a copy of the registration form.
Alternatively, please complete the online form below if you wish to register with our practice. Please ask the receptionist for further details.
We also ask you to bring in a copy of your passport or driving license. If you cannot provide ID, please let the receptionist know. New patients will be given a New Patient Registration health check appointment with our practice nurse. This involves asking you about your general medical history and family history.
You will need to complete one of these forms for each person you wish to register with our Practice. Those fields marked with an * are required.
