If you live within the practice area, you can register by coming to the practice and handing in a completed NHS medical card. If you do not have a card, but are eligible to receive NHS care, you can still register by completing a registration form at the surgery. If you are not sure if you are eligible for NHS care, or are unsure if you live within the practice area, please ask the receptionist.
Please note that although we have some patients who live in Southowram and Boothtown, we no longer accept new patients living in these areas, as they are now outside our practice area.
When you register you will be offered an appointment with the practice nurse for a new patient health check. We strongly advise you to attend this appointment, especially if you are on medication or have not been to see a doctor for some time.
If your personal details or address changes, please inform the practice as soon as possible so that we can amend our records. Unfortunately, if you move outside our practice area, we will no longer be able to keep you as a patient.
We do not accept online registrations as we require a photo ID when registering with the practice.
Please call at the surgery to collect the registration forms. When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.
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.
