New Patient Registration - Adults

Before you register with us – please check our Practice Area Map to make sure you are in our practice area.

Please download the below forms. You can either send the completed forms in the post, or complete an online form combining the GMS1 and new patient questionnaire further down this page.

We aim to have your registration complete within 3 working days.

Essential information we require:

  • Name and address of your last doctor
  • The address at which you were registered with that doctor
  • If you are from overseas, your place of birth and the date you arrived in the UK
  • Your signature

Every patient is now allocated a named GP. This may be different from the GP you usually see. This does not change the way you book appointments. It means that one GP will have overall responsibility for your care at the surgery. The practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate any requests regarding any preferences to be with a specific GP. Should you wish to know your named GP please contact Reception.

We recommend all patients sign up to online services. If you wish to do this, wherever possible please provide a mobile number so the practice can text you with your username and password.

We can supply you with a new patient registration form at the practice if you struggle to fill these out electronically.

Both the GMS1 Form and the New Patient Registration Form MUST be filled out in order for us to accept your registration.

If you are under 18 years old, or are filling out a form on behalf of a child – please fill out the Child New Patient Registration Form instead. Please make sure to still fill out the GMS1 Form for children.

A registration form must be filled out each individual person.

PATIENT DECLARATION for all patients who are not ordinarily resident in the UK

Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice. However, if you are not ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of ‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK. Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges. More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available from your GP practice.

You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment. The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.


Complete this section if you live in another EEA country, or have moved to the UK to study or retire, or if you live in the UK but work in another EEA member state. Do not complete this section if you have an EHIC issued by the UK.

If you are visiting from another EEA country and do not hold a current EHIC (or Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC))/S1, you may be billed for the cost of any treatment received outside of the GP practice, including at a hospital.

If yes, please enter details from your EHIC or PRC below:

How will your EHIC/PRC/S1 data be used? By using your EHIC or PRC for NHS treatment costs your EHIC or PRC data and GP appointment data will be shared with NHS secondary care (hospitals) and NHS Digital solely for the purposes of cost recovery. Your clinical data will not be shared in the cost recovery process. Your EHIC, PRC or S1 information will be shared with The Department for Work and Pensions for the purpose of recovering your NHS costs from your home country.

To gain access to your online account the section below must be completed. Our practice policy ensures that all applications for online registration will be reviewed and we aim to inform you within 2 weeks whether this has been approved

In the event of an approval of your online application, we hope that online services provided to you are beneficial. Some patients however (e.g. who suffer from a long term condition or require regular monitoring of their condition) may find that having access to more detailed information within their medical record is required. If you feel that this applies to you, please ask the receptionist for another registration form to request access to detailed coded information.
