Important message for those patients who use SystmOnline - be aware of an official looking email asking you to click a link to log in because 'we are changing the system and need to update'. SystmOnline has NOT sent emails and this is a scam. Please contact the surgery if your online access is affected. Thank you.
We are looking for people to join our Patient Representative Committee, the group meets 4 times a year. Please leave your details with reception if you are interested and the Practice Manager will be in contact.
We are looking for people to join our 'Practice Supporter' team to help during activities and signpost others to these. If this interests you or if you have any skills you may be able to use to help the practice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you wish to pre-register online with the Practice please go to the above “Registering Online” tab. Click on the links for pre-registration and medical questionnaire which will automatically be sent to us by e-mail when you press send (please note you will still need to visit the Surgery with ID before you can become fully registered,)
If you wish to register by attending the surgery, please bring your medical card and ID; the receptionist can help you complete it. If you do not possess a medical card please ask at reception for an application form. If you would like to meet the doctor before registering, please make an appointment.
After registration you may see any doctor (regardless of with whom you are registered) but, once your choice is made, it is preferable to remain with that doctor.
New patients will be invited to complete a simple personal health questionnaire and make an appointment with the practice nurse for a basic health screen and discussion of any health worries. If you take repeat medication, your appointment should be with your registered GP rather than the nurse.
Patients who do not wish to be registered as an NHS patient may request to be a private patient by liaison with an individual doctor. It is, however, the Practice policy that all patients are treated equally and that an NHS patient will receive at least as good a service as private patients.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct and provide ID, your registration process is not complete until all of the above has been completed.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
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.

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.
