Catchment area

We are happy to accept new patients who are ordinarily resident in the UK and living within our practice boundary.

See if you live within our practice boundary by using the interactive map and postcode checker.

You will be assigned to a doctor who will be your Named Accountable GP. 

You will be added to the practice list, not an individual doctor. You can ask to be seen by any of the doctors in the surgery but it will not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice on a particular day or time.

This practice operates a shared list, which means that patients are registered with the practice and not an individual GP. However, each patient is allocated a named GP. This does not affect your ability to see any doctor of your choice, within availability.

We will inform you of your named GP when we complete your registration. If you need to confirm your named GP at any point after that, please ask our reception team.

Your NHS number is a 10 digit number, like 485 777 3456. You do not need to know your NHS number to use NHS services, but it can be useful to have it.

When you register, it’s helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

Your medical records remain with your registered GP but we will provide you with full medical care while you are in the area. If you leave the UK for a period of more than three months the doctor is no longer responsible for your medical care and may not provide repeat medication in your absence.

New Patient Registrations

To register as a new patient you will need to live within our practice boundary. New patient registrations must currently be completed in person by attending the practice. Please attend the practice anytime after 10am Monday to Friday and a member of the team will be happy to assist you.

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.
