Generally we will only accept patients living within our defined practice area; details are available in reception. New patients registering with the practice will be asked to complete a “Health Questionnaire” and will be invited to attend a health check appointment if they are on regular medication. Patients are registered with the practice, rather than an individual doctor. However, patients can express a preference of practitioner. We will try to comply with your request, but it might not always be possible, in which case we will explain the reasons.
In addition if you are unable to attend the surgery for a health check because of your medical condition a home visit may be arranged.
We ask you for personal information to enable us to give you the very best care and treatment. This information is recorded on the computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. All members of staff are bound by strict rules of confidentiality.
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 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 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 practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to permanently register with the practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the surgery. The practice does not have to accept you as a temporary patient although we 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.
