Complete our registration forms

Register as a patient at the practice with our online form.

Please complete our online Registration Form giving your name, address, date of birth, and details of your previous address and doctor. This allows the NHS England to arrange for your medical record to be transferred to us. Alternatively you can pick up paper forms from the practice.

There are practical reasons why we might need to be assured that people are who they say they are, or to check where they live.

Seeing some form of ID will help to ensure the correct matching of a patient to the NHS central patient registry, thereby ensuring any previous medical notes are passed onto us.

Temporary Services

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 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.

Further Information on Temporary Registration

Out of Area Registrations

Patients who find themselves living out of area and are currently registered with Sea Mills for their clinical safey are advised to re-register at their nearest practice.

Overseas Visitors

Visitors from abroad are not normally entitled to receive care on the NHS and there will normally be a charge for any consultations and treatment. If a prescription is issued, there may be a charge at the pharmacy for the medication. If a patient requires referral to hospital, there are likely to be further charges.

Consultation with the Healthcare Assistant

Before a patient is accepted he/she must attend a consultation with our Healthcare Assistant; this is very helpful in providing us with brief information about your medical history. Afterwards you will then have a simple examination carried out by our Practice Nurse. This process will allow you to get to know our Practice and enable you to decide whether you wish to join our Practice.

Prior to booking a new registration appointment please remember to fill in this section if it applies:

  • If you were previously registered with another GP and are on repeat medication, please also bring the back-page of your prescription

You can only see the doctor once this registration process has been completed

When you are registered with the Practice you are free to see any of our GPs.

Your Named GP

All Patients registered with the surgery will have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GPs at the surgery. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your requests. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit.
