Register as New Patient
You are welcome to register with the Practice if you live within the Practice Areas.
To register as a patient at the Practice, please come to the surgery and speak to a receptionist. The receptionist will give you a form to complete for each person wanting to register. Complete the form(s) and hand it back to the receptionist.
Your details will be entered on the computer and your notes requested from your old surgery. Getting your notes may take up to six weeks.
We will book you in for a new patient appointment as soon as possible following the completion of your registration form.
You can still make an appointment to see a doctor or nurse before your notes arrive.
The Practice provides telephone interpreting and document translation services through Capita and will translate any information it publishes into the appropriate language upon request.
Should you need interpreting services, please ensure the Practice is made aware at the earliest possible time by telephoning:
Imperial Road - 01629 583465
Ashover - 01246 590711
The Practice will make provision for longer consultation times to assist with any difficulties you may have.
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.
