We are happy to accept your relatives and friends as our patients if they live in our area. Ask them to bring their medical card to the surgery, proof of address & Previous Doctor’s details. You will then be able to complete a Registration Form. These forms are quite lengthy so please give yourself about 20 minutes to complete them if you are coming into surgery. Please also answer each question, even if you write in "not applicable", as this will help to speed up the process when we check the forms.
We will endeavour to comply with any reasonable preference expressed, but your choice of GP cannot be guaranteed
We will also accept patients out of area, but only if you consent to receiving no home visits. As you would be out of our catchment area it would not be a timely use of our GP resources and therefore not cost effective. Whilst your health is our primary objective we also have to consider other factors. You can register but will be asked to sign a consent form. No other form of care provided by us would be affected by this. Just remember though, if you became ill at home you would have to access other primary care providers, eg Urgent care/walk in centres or A&E.
If you need medical attention when away from home, you are entitled to see a Doctor anywhere in the UK. We will be happy to see any friends or relatives staying with you if they need medical attention.
