  • West Bridgford – please check with reception as not all of West Bridgford is included
  • Clifton – We are not currently taking new patients from Clifton

If you wish to register with us, we ask that you complete the following – Registration Form, New Patient Health Questionnaire which includes our policy consent for Sharing your GP record form and optional online access services, which will provide us with useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous surgery. All forms can be picked up from the surgery in one of our new patient packs or they can be downloaded from below.

If you require information or communication in an alternative format (eg. large print, braille) please indicate this on your Health Questionnaire. We will then make reasonable adjustments to accommodate your needs. In addition, the following website has some useful information- including auditory and visual aids.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

If you have repeat medication we advise that you request a month’s supply at your old practice BEFORE you submit your New Patient Registration pack to this practice. You may ask them to send the prescription to your new area pharmacy for collection (maybe a pharmacy near your postcode).

Guide to GP Services

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.

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.

Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:

Temporary Patients

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.
