Join the Practice

Register as a New Patient - PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING WITH US!!

Before filling out a registration form, check you are in our catchment area by using the map and postcode checker opposite.

Please complete a combined  REGISTRATION FORM & HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE for each person wishing to join the practice which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. You may also be asked to provide a brief summary of your history from your current GP. 

Completion of the online form does not guarantee that your registration request will be accepted. You will receive confirmation of registration by post.

All new patients aged 16 and over are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

All patients have the right to request a consultation with their preferred practitioner within our practice. Please ask when making an appointment.

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

Out of Area Registrations

We are currently limiting the number of new patient registrations that live outside our practice boundary. This is due to a significant increase in patients wanting to register who live within our practice boundary.  Please do not be offened if your application is refused, we will always offer adivce as to your nearest Practice.

Please use the postcode checker above to find out if your address falls outside of our boundary. 

New arrangements introduced in January 2015, mean GP practices now have the option to register patients (but may refuse) who live outside the practice area but without any obligation to provide home visits.

If you fall into this category, we will process your registration under the new out of area arrangements.

This means you may still be registered with us, attend the practice and receive the full range of services provided as normal at the surgery but the practice will not provide you with a home visit should you need one.

We have put together a few Frequently Asked Questions to help guide you through this process.

Q: What do I do if I need a home visit?

A: If you have an urgent care need and the surgery cannot help you at home, you can call NHS 111 and they will put you in touch with a local service (this may be a face to face appointment with a local healthcare professional or a home visit where necessary)

Q: What if I am not happy with this new arrangement?

A: You can register with a Practice closer to you, who currently includes the area you live within their Practice boundary and will be able to provide home visits if you need one. You can visit the NHS Choices website for further information on www.nhs.uk

If you have any queries regarding these arrangements then please don’t hesitate to contact our Practice Manager who will be happy to help with any issues you may have.

Are you in or out?

Temporary Registrations

If you are ill while away please contact your own GP for advice, prescriptions can be sent to any phamacy electronically in England. 

If you need to be seen by a GP we ask that you firstly contact your own GP or 111 for advice or if an emergency attend our nearest A&E department at Furness General Hospital in Barrow. We are not an emergency service.

If after contacting your own GP or 111 you are advised to see a GP, you can be registered with us as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on our 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 our practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact reception, you must be staying with in our catchment area to do this (please use the practice boundary checker above to see if your accomodation is within our practice boundary).  You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

Due to sharing the building with another GP practice we only accept temporary patients during the months of April, August and December
