New Patients

Register as New Patient

If you live within the catchment area of our two surgeries, which is mainly the Rayleigh and Hockley areas you may register with us.

You need to ask reception for a GMS1 form and a new patient questionnaire. Separate forms should be completed for each member of the family wishing to register. Alternatively you may pre-register online using the links below.

It is very important that you complete both forms giving all of the requested information as much as possible, and that you sign the GMS1 form at the bottom of the first page.

Proof of ID and address will be required. Proof of address needs to be no older than 3 months.

We will also need to comply with any immigration or NHS rules in this matter.

If you have not had a doctor in the UK before and are wishing to register you will need to bring in your passport and proof of address, and we will also need the date you entered the country. This is in accordance with current laws. Not having such paperwork does not deprive anyone to seek emergency medical help from us.

Please make sure you keep your personal details which we have at the surgery up to date, for example if you change your address (and are still in the catchment area), name or telephone number. Please make sure you tell us immediately.

Temporary Patient Registrations

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.

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.

Disabled Patient Facilities

The practice operates from two purpose-built surgeries. Both have wheelchair access.

We are within easy reach of local car parks
