New Patient Registration
We are pleased to accept new patients living within our practice boundary. Your registration should be processed within one working week.
As a GP training practice, we offer high quality medical care and aim to treat all our patients as individuals.
If you have signed up for the Patient Online Services, you will receive an email with your login details. If you have not yet signed up, please do consider this option as it enables you to book your GP appointments at any time and request your repeat medication.
Temporary Patient Registration
If you are unwell 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 register 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 register permanently with the 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.
Notes on Completing the Required Form
Once you have completed the GMS1 form and returned this with the supporting documents we are then able to register you. You will not be registered until our procedures are complete.
To complete your GMS1 form, it is essential that all the areas of the form are completed legibly. The areas usually missed out are:
- Town and county born in and area of London if born in London e.g. Wandsworth or town and country if born outside the UK
- Previous address – if you are changing GP and staying at the same address please put “address as above”
- Previous GP and address – address is not vital but it helps
- NHS number: This will allow us to process your application as quickly as possible. Your NHS number can be found on your NHS card, on correspondence from the hospital or by ringing your previous GP practice
