New Registration Pack
You have a right to express a preference of a particular doctor to register with. This request will be accommodated where possible but will depend on the availability at the time. Please indicate this to staff at the time of registration.
Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice.
However, if you are not ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of ‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK.
Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges.
You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment.
The information you give on the GMS1 form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.
NHS England have produced some leaflets for patient's from vulnerable groups, which are below:

You only need to register as a temporary patient if you are ill or need medical advice whilst you are away from home - you do not need to register as a temporary patient just in case you become ill.
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.

As a dispensing Practice, we are not allowed to dispense to patients who live within 1.6km (1 mile) of a pharmacy. If you live within one of the dispensary boundaries shown on this map we can’t dispense to you.
If you are on Repeat Medication you will need to book an appointment with your new GP prior to their first issue.
We operate a Zero Tolerance Policy towards physical violence and verbal abuse in order to protect our doctors and staff. lf a patient becomes violent or abusive towards any doctor, Staff or other person present on Practice premises, we reserve the right to arrange their immediate removal from our list.
