Register as a New Patient
To register at either of the practices, you will need to fill in your medical card and the receptionist will give you a registration form to complete. The form or card will then be sent to Patient Services who will arrange for your medical record to be transferred from your previous GP. When you register, you will be offered a new patient health check. This helps us to get to know you and any medical needs you may have, before the transfer of your records.
All new patients will be registered on a Practice List rather than on a particular GP's list as previously. This does not affect your right to see a particular doctor.
Please note: When registering it is helpful to bring proof of address e.g. utility bill, bank statement, tenancy agreement and also some photographic identification e.g. passport or driving licence.
The practice takes patients from Walkley, Crookes, Malin Bridge, Wisewood, Stannington, Loxley, and heading out towards Storrs.
Online 'Pre-Registration' With The Practice
If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the forms to confirm that the details are correct.
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.
