The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As it often takes sometime for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a consultation with the practice sister.
Registrations are not accepted before 10 a.m.
All patients coming into register must provide a current passport/UK entry visa if appropriate, along with proof of address in the form of a utility bill or rental aggrement dated within the last 3 months.
Patients entering the UK on a student visa are only entitled to NHS treatment whilst studying, therefore must provide a copy of their enrolment letter.
We require 3 working days to process registrations. You will be able to start receiving medical treatment from the practice after this time.
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.
