If you wish, you may see the Practice Nurse for a New Patient Check – please call us for an appointment.
If you are taking regular medications please make an appointment to see one of the GPs at least 2 weeks before your next supply is due.
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.
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.

Disabled Patient Facilities
The surgery provides easy access for those with disabilities. There is a disabled parking bay at the entrance, ramp to a lift to the first floor where the toilet is equipped with disabled facilities.
There is also a portable hearing loop for patients hard of hearing with a hearing aid to use. If you would like to use this when you attend the surgery, either in reception or while seeing the doctor or nurse, please let reception know. You will need to switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position.
Please let the receptionist know if you have problems with sight or hearing so appropriate help can be provided.
