New Patient Registration

Joining the Surgery

If you would like to register with the practice please use this form.

To register a new patient you will need to live within our practice boundary.

Anyone in England can register with a GP Surgery. Its free to register and you do not need proof of ID, address, immigration status or an NHS number.

It may be helpful though when registering if you do have one of the following:

  • Passport
  • Birth certificate
  • HC2 certificate
  • Rough sleepers’ identity badge
  • Hostel or accommodation registration or mail forwarding letter

If you are homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend’s address, a day centre or the GP Surgery address. Immigration will also not be checked and this is a safe place.

Temporary Patients

If you are ill whilst away from home, or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can register 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; the norm being as a permanent patient.

To register as a temporary patient with Elm Surgery please complete and submit our Temporary Registration Form. 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.
