New Patients

How to Register

Register as New Patient

If you wish to register with the practice please visit us and talk to our receptionists. It would be a great help if you could bring your up to date medical card with you. If you cannot find it simply see our receptionist and ensure you know the following details:

  • Full name, including previous names
  • Date and place of birth
  • Last address
  • New address and postcode
  • Name and address of your previous doctor
  • NHS number if known

All new patients are required to complete a confidential questionnaire about their medical history. This will help the doctors and nurses understand your health needs. Registration forms and questionnaires are available from reception. Once these forms have been completed you will be offered a new patient consultation.

Practice Area

The practice covers the following post codes:

B8, B9, B10, B25, B26, B33

Named Accountable GP

From 1 April 2015, practices are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children). Individual patients will be informed of their named, accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice. If you wish to be told the name of your named, accountable GP, please ask the receptionist when you are next in surgery. For convenience your named, accountable GP will be the doctor you are registered with.

Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.

Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

All clinicians will have full access to your medical records with dealing with your needs.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
