Join The Practice
Register as a New Patient
If you live within the practice area below, please call into the surgery and complete a registration form. All new patients will be asked to provide proof of entitlement (proof of identity and proof of residency) and complete a questionnaire. When registering a baby please ensure you remember to bring the child's birth certificate and red book.
To save time you may wish to complete the three forms below and bring them with you to the surgery.
Raunds, Stanwick, Ringstead, Denford, Keyston, Catworth, Bythorn, Hargrave, Yeldon, Chelveston, Caldecott and the Addingtons.
Higham Ferrers, Thrapston and Irthlingborough are not included in the practice area.
From January 2015 patients will be able to choose to register with any GP practice which is convenient for them (eg close to their work). Please note that this practice will not be registering patients from outside our practice area. Details are shown below:
Please note all patients will be required to have a new patient health check with Karen, our healthcare assistant. This will be a 20 minute appointment and should ideally be within 3 weeks of registering.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please note that if you are registering at the practice and require repeat medication, you will need to have an appointment with a GP before any medication can be issued. We strongly advise that you make sure that you request your old surgery to supply enough medication for at least ONE month in order for us to accommodate the appointments needed.
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.
