Register as New Patient
Please follow the link to complete your registration.
We welcome registration of the new patients. Please see below the information that we require and the times when we collect the information.
We try to arrange an appointment with our healthcare assistant for all our new patient to get an up to date medical history and to organise any health screening as appropriate.
We register patients living in the following post codes: RM8, RM9, IG3, IG11.
For all children up until the age of 6, the parent/ guardian should provide with copy of their childhood immunisation record. Please send this along with the other registration documents.
Polite notice - We are unable to register you without all the required information. You must complete your previous address and previous GP details in the form if you have previously registered with another surgery.
Patients who are new to this country/ have not registered with another GP, must put the date you first came to live in UK.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
