New Patient Health Check
After registration, you will be asked to attend an appointment with a Health Care Support Worker or Practice Nurse for a new patient health check.
The new patient check can be undertaken within 6 months following registration. This enables us to ensure that we have the correct details and to be aware of any current medical problems or medications. Please bring a sample of urine along to your first consultation.
You will be allocated a named GP on registration but you will be registered with the practice rather than that individual GP. You may see any of the doctors. However, if you do have a preferred GP, please let us know when making an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
New patients are allocated a Doctor on registration.
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 resident or register permanently.
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, download and complete the Temporary Resident Registration Form (also available from reception) and contact the practice.
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.
