Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
Who can register?
First, check you live within our main Catchment Area (green area on map above).
Unfortunately if you do not live in our main Catchment Area, we will not be able to register you.
If you are registered with us but move anywhere within our main Catchment Area (green area), you can continue to be registered with us. However if you move to the Extended Catchment Area (yellow area), you will need to register with a new GP as soon as possible. Once you have done this and become an active patient with a new GP Practice, all of your electronic notes will be transferred to the new Practice automatically. If you have any paper notes, they will also be transferred to the new Practice within a set time period.
You may register permanently with us if you are normally resident in the UK for longer than 6 months in a year. If you are only staying in the area for a short time, ask to be registered as a temporary patient.

Registered children and newborn babies
Information for parents and guardians – once children or newborn babies are registered on the system, our admin team may contact you to ensure that we have a full record of your children’s immunisations and to ensure that all recommended health checks are completed on time, especially the 6-8 week health check for newborn babies. You may also be required to send us information from your children’s red books, such as current immunisations record , or a copy of your children’s birth certificates to confirm details such as name, address, date of birth. Having an accurate and up-to-date information for our patients enables the Practice to provide best health care and services to everyone registered on our list.
