New Patients

Register as a New Patient

We accept new patients who live within our practice area (see map opposite).

New patients are required to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire and provide photographic ID and proof of address.

Please contact reception for further information.

Named GP

All of our patients are allocated a ‘Named GP’ as it is a contractual requirement.

Having a named GP does not mean that you have to see a particular GP and you do not have to change what you are currently doing – just continue as you are.

If you are not aware of your ‘named GP’ and would like to know, just ask a member of staff.

Temporary Patient Registrations

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.

Disabled Patient Facilities

At the Manor House surgery reserved car parking spaces for the disabled are marked near the front door. Wheelchair access to the building is via a ramp near the front entrance.

The ramp also allows access to the treatment room from outside in an emergency.

Patient services are provided at ground floor level; however, a lift is provided to access the first floor.

A disabled patients’ W.C. is provided in the waiting area and another is available on the second floor. If access proves difficult to any of our disabled patients we would be happy to consider any suggestions for improvement.
