We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area.
Before you register, CLICK HERE to make sure your post code is in the practice’s catchment area.
You can register by bringing along your NHS medical card and photographic identification (passport or new type driving licence) and completing a form available from reception. Forms can also be downloaded from the above "Registering Online" tab.
If you are not able to provide photographic identification we will contact your previous surgery to confirm your registration there and your details. We will also make a note on your records if you prefer to see a particular doctor or nurse.
All patients are assigned an "accountable GP" who will take lead responsibility for ensuring that services, where ever possible are, coordinated and delivered, to meet the needs of the patient.
We recommend new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

We welcome patients whose home post code is within out catchment area. Please check your post code below:
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.

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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
From January 2015 all GP practices are free to register new patients who live outside their usual practice area, but there is no obligation on the practice to provide home visits for when the patient is unable to get to the surgery. This means that the patient may live in London, but work in Littleport and would like to register with this practice as it is easier for them to attend for routine appointments etc. However, the doctors here must assure themselves that it is clinically appropriate (safe) for the patient to be registered in this way.
If the patient is unwell and unable to attend our surgery and the doctors feels that the patient requires a home visit, that visit will not be done by this practice. Where possible, the visit will be done by the practice within whose boundary the patient lives. Our doctors will need to be sure that the local practice is willing to undertake home visits.
If the patient is willing to accept this limited registration, and the doctors here are happy that there is cover for local consultations and home visits at the patient’s home address, we can register the patient.
Registered Patients that move Out of our Area can request to remain registered at this practice. However, the same conditions apply in that the doctors must agree that it is clinically safe to do so and the patient accepts the limitations of this type of registration.
Therefore, each request to register a patient from out of our area will be individually reviewed.
All patients are encouraged to "share" their records but this is especially important for patients from out of our area. The will enable the local doctor to see the patient's full medical record if required.
