Register as a New Patient
The practice list is currently open and we are happy to accept new patients.
All newly registered patients are required to attend a new patient consultation with our health care assistant.
Online pre-registration forms can be comleted below.
Named GP for Registered Patients
All GP practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our practice provides.
Patients aged 75 and over or those at risk of readmission to hospital will have have been already notified of their named GP separately.
All other patients have been allocated a named GP in the following categories by surname: (please check the first letters of your surname below)
- A – DAV inclusive – Dr Howe
- DAW – HU inclusive – Dr Pradeep
- HY – OT inclusive – Dr Sunkavalli
- OV – Z inclusive – Dr Garcia
Please note that this does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now, and you are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is delivered to you by us. You do not need to take any further action.
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.
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.
