Registration Medical

Once registered, make an appointment with our nursing team for a registration medical.

We invite all our new patients to see one of our practice nurses or our health care assistant. This appointment enables us to collect medical information before your medical records arrive. It is also the start of screening for other medical problems. Normally, you will need to complete a registration medical before seeing one of our GPs.

For Guidance on overseas visitors please please visit GOV.UK for further information.

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment for 14 days.

To register as a temporary resident please speak to reception on 0191 4772296

You can register as a temporary resident with a GP in England if you are in the area for longer than 24 hours but less than three months.
