How to Register
You may register with us, by requesting a form at reception, if you live within the practice boundary.
Registration is with a practice and not with a specific GP.
If you move outwith our practice area, you should find a new doctor nearer to where you live as soon as possible.
The Practice has restrictions on its registrations. If we are able to take on new patient registrations, patients should attend at the surgery after 2pm on a Monday and complete registrations forms. This will be on a first come first served basis. We apologise for any inconvenience.
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.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
If you wish to register with the practice, please print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it with you prior to your first visit to the practice.
Registration Form Hermitage
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to complete this form.
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
If you live within the outlined boundary on the map attached, then you are welcome to register with our Practice. Please follow instructions above on how to register.
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
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.
Temporary residents cannot be seen in open surgeries. The practice requires 48hrs notice to be able to register you onto our system before we can offer you an appointment.
