If you are already a patient and are about to move to a new address please let the reception team know by completing our change of details form. If you move outside of the Practice Catchment area iunfortunately you will need to register with a GP surgery closer to your new home.

Temporary Services

If you are unwell when you are 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. This registration should not be used if you need a repeat prescription. In this case you should contact your GP surgery who can then send an electronic prescription (EPS) to a pharmacy of your choice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the 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.

Your Named GP

All Patients registered with the surgery will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the surgery. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
