We welcome new patients who live within our practice area to register with us. Please view the practice boundary here. If you have moved into the area from another GP practice you need to provide your previous GP plus your NHS number. This helps the NHS arrange for the transfer of your medical records from your previous practice.
Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. It’s free to register. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
Out of Area Registrations
For patients who work in our catchment area and DO NOT live in the area but would like to register with our practice as a new patient, we offer the patient to be registered as an ‘out of area’ registered patient WITHOUT HOME VISITS OR COMMUNITY SERVICES. This will mean that we are aware that you live outside the practice area (catchment area) and when you registered at the practice it was made aware to you that we are not required to provide you with a home visit.
GP surgeries are usually the first contact if you have a health problem. They can treat many conditions and give health advice. They can also refer you to other NHS services. You do not need proof of ID to register with a GP, but it might help if you have one or more of the following:
Passport | Birth certificate | HC2 certificate | Rough sleepers’ identity badge | Hostel or Accommodation registration |Mail forwarding letter
If you’re homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend’s address, a day centre or the GP surgery address.
Please note: You will be asked to upload the ID proof in case you request online access to medical records.
