Join The Practice

We welcome new patients who live within our practice area to register with us. Please view the practice boundary here.

Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. It's free to register. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

GP surgeries are usually the first contact if you have a health problem. They can treat many conditions and give health advice. They can also refer you to other NHS services. You do not need proof of ID to register with a GP, but it might help if you have one or more of the following:

Passport | Birth certificate | HC2 certificate | Rough sleepers' identity badge | Hostel or Accommodation registration |Mail forwarding letter

If you're homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend's address, a day centre or the GP surgery address.

Please note: You will be asked to upload the ID proof in case you request online access to medical records.

NHS Organ Donor Registration

Organ donation in England has moved to an 'opt out' system. This means that all adults in England will be considered to have agreed to be an organ donor when they die unless they have recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups.

You still have a choice about whether or not you wish to become a donor. If you wish to know more on the law and Opt Out from the register, please visit NHS Organ Donation.
