We welcome requests to register with the practice from anyone who lives within our practice boundary.
How to Register
To register, simply complete the following two forms
**please remember to include your NHS number. (It can be obtained from your current practice)
Paper copies can also be collected from reception.
For you to get the best out of the practice and to understand how we work, please take time to read our practice leaflet and browse this website.
We also encourage you to join our Facebook page where we regularly post updates about the practice and it’s services, health information and any urgent messages.
If you move house and then reside outside of our practice area, you cannot remain as a patient unfortunately and you’ll need to register with a new practice as soon as possible.
If you are on any regular medication please ensure you have received sufficient supply from your previous practice before registering as we may not be able to issue a repeat prescription immediately.
New Patient Health Check
Once registered you’ll be invited for a new patient check with the Healthcare Assistant.
This appointment enables us to collect some basic medical information about you before your medical records arrive from your previous practice.
You’ll be asked some questions about your lifestyle and family history, measure your height and weight, take your blood pressure and do blood tests. If needed you’ll be offered advice and referral to help with smoking cessation, weight management and alcohol.
Transfer of Medical Records
Once registered a request is made to your previous practice for your medical records. Please be aware that the transfer from one practice to another can take a number of weeks with the transfer between England and Wales taking a particularly longtime.
Any GP can treat you as a temporary patient if you are away from home for longer than 24 hours. Your best course of action however is to call NHS 111 Wales, where a Nurse Adviser will be able to advise and assist.
If you’re going to be away from home for 3 months or more you should register with a GP at your new address as soon as possible.
Details of any treatment received whilst a temporary patient will be sent to your regular GP practice for their records
If you are a patient at the practice and go away from home to attend university, you would normally register with a new GP practice near to where you are living. Please understand that when you do this, it means that you are no longer a patient at this practice and all the records which we hold for you are transferred to the new practice and you become inactive on our system. When you are back home during holidays, we can see you as a temporary patient but we won’t have access to your medical records.
If you decide that you want to change practice, you don’t have to tell us or give us an explanation.
