Register as New Patient
All patients are registered with the practice but can express a preference for a particular doctor. To register with us you will be asked to complete a registration form and a short questionnaire. Both forms are available online via the links below.
Proof of identity is also required. We accept anyone who lives within our catchment area and are eligible for treatment.
We encourage all new patients to attend a screening appointment to help us establish your health care needs.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
As part of a national programme, from 1 April 2015, practices are contractually required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children) who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them. Your named GP will ensure that you receive the best possible level of care and support and will work with other relevant healthcare professionals who are involved in your care to ensure that your care meets your individual needs. This does not prevent or restrict you from seeing any other GP or nurse in the Practice.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss this further please contact the surgery on 0113 2720900.
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.
