This quota does not include new babies and relatives of existing patients who live in the practice area.
25th March 2020 - In light of the current coronavirus pandemic we are looking to reduce the number of people passing through the medical practice. As a result as a temporary measure we are unable to take face to face registrations.
A member of staff will be available today from 12 noon to assist with registrations to the left of front door via the window. We unfortunately can only take a limited number of registrations - 18 per week. Please be patient as we are extremely busy at this time.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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. If you are living in the area 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 at your home address. 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.
