If you would like to register with the practice then please collect a New Patient Pack from the Health Centre. You will be asked to complete an official NHS registration form for each person or family member registering. You will also be given a new patient medical questionnaire and an ethnicity form, which provides us with basic medical information for the period until your notes reach the practice.

You will be asked to make an initial appointment with the healthcare assistant which must be kept otherwise you will not be accepted as a patient.

It is our policy that patients register with the practice and not with an individual GP. Your medical card will have a doctor's name attached, but this is purely for administrative purposes.

You may indicate your preference to see or speak to a particular doctor, but the practice cannot always accommodate these requests as specific doctors may not always be available.

Temporary Registrations

The Yellow Practice are currently unable to accept anyone wishing to be seen as a Temporary Resident.

We will update the website when the situation changes .

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.
