New Patients

Register as a New Patient

Please check to make sure you fall within our practice boundary before you try and register with us. To do this simply click on the map opposite for a larger version and postcode checker.

All new patients registering with the practice will be requested to complete a medical questionnaire and registration form. An appointment will then be made with our nurse which will enable her to carry out a “new patient registration exam”. This examination checks blood pressure, weight and height and covers past and present medical and family history.

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

Named GP

Every patient that is registered at Long Catlis Road Surgery will have a Named GP. This is allocated to you when you register with the surgery. However it may not always be possible for you to see your allocated named GP.

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.

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.
