Register as New Patient
Please check that you live within our practice area by clicking on the link below and downloading our area map. We are currently accepting new patients from the area marked pink on the map.
Please check that you are eligible to join a GP list permanently - you must normally be:

- living in the UK for the majority of the time (more than 6 consecutive months in any year, 9 months in total)
You can pre-register using the links below to the registration form and health questionnaire.
If you are able it would be helpful if you could bring the following original documents to reception with your completed forms:
- Proof of identity: Passport or EU ID card, Photographic UK driving licence, UK birth certificate, child’s immunisation red book.
- Proof of address (dated within the last 3 months): utility bill, tenancy agreement, bank or credit card statement, council tax bill
Please record your blood pressure using the machine in our waiting room at Stone Cross Surgery if you are able.
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.
