New Patients Welcome
Register as a New Patient Now!
We have a Practice boundary (see map opposite) to offer patients in this area a full clinical service. If you are unsure whether your address falls within the practice boundary please contact the surgery for further advice.
If you live outside this area, we can offer a limited service to “Out of Area” patients.
Not all patients will be suitable for “Out of Area” registration as services will be limited. If you are getting help with Social Services, Midwife, Health Visitor, District Nurse etc, it may not be appropriate for you to register here.
How to Register (please state if you are “Out of Area” because the forms are slightly different)
What you need to join the Practice:
- Registration form (GMS1) *
- New Patient Questionnaire *
- Summary Care Record opt in/out form *
- Proof of ID (originals please)
* Available from reception
Register as an Out of Area Patient
We now register patients outside of our catchment area.
New rules mean that we can now register patients who do not live within our practice area.
If we accept you onto our list as an “out of area” patient and it becomes apparent it is no longer clinically appropriate or practical we will discuss this with you to see if it would be more appropriate for you to be registered with a GP practice closer to your home.
What happens if I’m not well enough to come to the surgery?
You will have access to all the services we provide to patients in our area, however, we will not be able to provide you with home visits.
If you are too ill for the practice to help you over the phone, call NHS 111. The NHS 111 service will be able to tell you about access to local services or, where necessary, arrange a home visit.
Pre-Registration with the Practice
If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit Form" button to mail your form to us.
You must then bring your original photo ID documents to the practice as soon as possible, at this point you will also be asked to sign the patient registration form you emailed, to confirm that the details are correct.
We do like to keep a photocopy of your ID, until your registration is accepted by NHS Warwickshire. In order for us to do this we will ask you to sign a consent form. If your registration is then rejected for any reason, we can use this information to correction the reasons for the rejection (they are often spelling errors etc). As soon as your registration is accepted your copy of ID will be securely disposed off (shredded on site). If for any reason you do not want us to retain a copy of your ID and should your registration be declined we will need to contact you, to provide any further clarification/proof. The normal registration process is completed between 2-6 weeks.
Named Accountable GP
Practices are required to allocate a named accountable GP to all practice including children.
If you are unclear who your named accountable GP please ask our reception team. If you feel you would like a different GP to be allocated to you then this can be requested and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Please note: you are free to see any GP in the Practice.
GP2GP allows patients' electronic health records to be transferred directly, securely, and quickly between their old and new practices, when they change GPs.
This improves patient care by making full and detailed medical records available to practices, for a new patient's first and later consultations.
Change of Personal Details
If you change your name, address, telephone number or email address, please remember to inform us.
You can speak to the reception staff or complete the online form, which can be found on our practice website. If you move outside the practice area, you may want to stay with us. We now take "Out of Area" patients!
Click here to use the online form to notify us of your change of details. Fill out the details and press thes submit button.

Child Health Surveillance
This ensures that your child is called for all immunisations and developmental checks.
This will automatically be applied when you register your child with us.
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.
