Join the Practice
Register as a New Patient
The practice is happy to register anyone who lives in the G41, G43, G46, G5 8, G51, G52, G53 postcode areas. Please note that you will be registering with the practice and not with a specific doctor. You are still entitled to consult with the GP of your choice.
All new patients will be required to complete a registration form and a medical questionnaire prior to being registered. Online versions of these forms are available below.
We also require information regarding eligibility to register as a NHS patient. Please bring along two forms of identification - for adults this must include one form of photographic ID (passport, driving licence) and proof of current address such as a utility bill dated within the last three months.
New patients are invited to attend for a free health check with the health care support worker. Details are available from reception.
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.
