Family doctor services registration (GMS1)
If you wish to join our practice please ask a receptionist for a registration form for each person that wishes to join.
The form will ask you for personal details such as your name, address, date of birth and your previous doctor’s name and address. This will assist in tracing your medical records as quickly as possible.
Once you have completed and signed the form you will be placed on the list of the doctor of your choice.
You will then be sent a new medical card with your doctor’s name on for you to keep.
During the registration process the receptionist will make you an appointment with the practice nurse for a new patient check.
You can also register by internet, inserting your details below.
Please help us trace your previous medical records by providing the following information
If you are returning from the Armed Forces
If you are registering a child under 5
If you need your doctor to dispense medicines and appliances
Not all doctors are authorised to dispense medicines

For all patients who are not ordinarily resident in the UK
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.
More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the
Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available from your GP practice.
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 this 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.
A parent/guardian should complete the form on behalf of a child under 16.
