New Patients

Registration

We are now registering new patients!!!

To register as a patient one must come to the surgery and complete a registration form and a new patient health questionaire. Alternatively, they may register online via the form above. Once both forms are completed these details we will then be processed by our administrative team prior to a new patient interview.  

We do not exclude patients from the practice on grounds of age, sex, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin or disability, sexual orientation, religion or religious or philosophical belief or medical condition.

Following a successful application, all new patients will be informed of their named accountable GP.

New arrivals to UK should bring their passport and will be registered provided they are entitled to NHS treatment within our practice boundary. 

If you are located outside our practice boundary (click here to download a map),  please note that we may not be able to offer some of our usual medical services. Please contact the GP surgery for further details in regards to this. 

Please Note: All patients who are registered at the practice agree to our 'Zero Tolerance Policy' when it comes to the abuse of NHS staff and breaching of this agreement will result in a request for removal from the practice. 

New registration forms can take up to 5 working days to be processed. Please bear with the practice if there are unexpected delays through other channels such as PCSE too. If there is any complication or delay in your registration process, the medical centre will contact you directly.

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 our 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 our practice. SMC does 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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
