Non-urgent advice: Register as a New Patient

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, completed forms should be returned to the practice as soon as possible, it then takes up to 10 working days to complete your registration.

Non-urgent advice: Temporary 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-urgent advice: Accountable GP

As part of the NHS commitment to providing more personalised care, all patients are allocated an accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides.

  • This will not impact your experience at the practice, the provision of appointments, your treatment, or which GP you can see.
  • You may wonder why your allocated GP is not necessarily the one you see most regularly. Please be assured that you can still access all of our medical team in exactly the same way as before.
  • Having a named GP does not guarantee you will always be seen by that GP.
  • Please note that the GP responsible for your care may be subject to change and reallocation in the future.

You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions or wish to know your named GP, please speak to a member of the reception team.

What does ‘accountable’ mean?

This is largely a role of oversight, with the requirements being introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf.

What are the named GP's responsibilities to 75s and over?

For patients aged 75 and over the named accountable GP is responsible for:

  • working with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient;
  • ensuring that these patients have access to a health check.

Does the requirement mean 24-hour responsibility for patients?

No. The named GP will not:

  • be responsible or accountable for the work of other doctors or health professionals.
  • take on 24-hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours. The requirement does not imply personal availability for GPs throughout the working week.
  • be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient.

Can patients choose their own named GP?

In the first instance, patients should simply be allocated a named GP. However, if a patient requests a particular GP, reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate their preference, recognising that there are occasions when the practice may not feel the patient’s preference is suitable.

Do patients have to see the named GP when they book an appointment with the practice?

No. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.
