If you live within our practice area you will need to complete a registration form, available at either reception, and provide identification if over 18 years of age; you can find the aceptable forms of ID on the next tab "what do I need to register".
You will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP.
You will also be asked to fill in a health questionnaire and will be offered a new patient assessment with our health care assistant.
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
When you register with us alongside the registration form and health questionnaire we do require some form of ID and evidence of activity in the community (proof of address).
Listed below are the acceptable forms of identification as provided by NHS Manchester:-
A list of aceptable forms of activity in the community are displayed at our reception desk.
We may not be able to register you if you are unable to provide a form of identification.

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.

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 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.
