Application forms can be completed as an online form or on paper at reception.

Completing an application form is just the beginning of the process to register as a patient.

After completing  your application form, please contact us after 2 working days and we can let you know if you are able to register with us, or if not, the reason why. It is rare that we do not accept new applications to our list but the GP does have the discretion to do so should they wish.

Once accepted, you will need an appointment to see the Nurse or Healthcare Assistant for a New Patient Health Check. Until you have had this check you will not be registered as a patient and will not be able to see the GP except in exceptional circumstances. Patients who miss their new patient health check appointment will not be able to register with this surgery.

Don't forget if you need to be seen downstairs due to mobility issues, please let the receptionist know at the time of booking so they can make sure the downstairs room is free for you.

Practice Area

Our practice area is displayed approximately by this map. If you are unsure if your home is within our boundaries, please click on the map above to enlarge it or contact the reception team who will be able to advise you. We do not accept patients who live outside of the practice area as agreed with NHS England. 

The surgery is located approx. ¼ mile from the Town Centre. It is served by several bus routes and there is some parking in the streets around. There is ample undercover parking for pushchairs.

As of 1st July 2012, we have agreed an outer boundary with NHS England. This outer boundary encompasses Willwood Avenue, Bay Close, Peckett Close, Millfield Close, Raynor Close and Mountbatten Gardens in Oakes. Our currently registered patients who move to these streets may be able to stay registered with the practice at the GP's Clinical discretion. We are not obliged to accept new patients applying to register from this outer boundary area. 

Patients moving outside of our practice area and then later returning to an address in area, will require a utility bill dated within the last 3 months as proof of address.

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 if they have capacity or signpost you to another service that does. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

Non-English Speakers

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 practice premises have wheelchair access via a ramp although unfortunately no disabled toilet facilities are available due to the nature and age of the building. There is a doorbell by the main entrance in case you need help getting into the building. We’re happy to help – just ask!

Stairs a Problem?

To better aid our less able patients and visitors we can arrange for them to be seen on the ground floor if they cannot manage the stairs, please do let reception know when you are booking if your require this. Downstairs Nurse appointments will normally need to be between 1pm to 3pm when the ground floor room is not in use by the GP.
