Patient Registration

How to register with us

If you live within the practice catchment area you may register as a patient with the practice. Existing patients who move outside the area are advised to register with a GP near their new home.

To register with us, click on the link below to complete the on-line registration form.  Once we have received your completed form, we will contact you.  Please ensure that you fill out all required fields or this may delay the process. 

To verify your identity you will need to provide 2 forms of identification as follows:

1) Personal Photo ID - e.g. passport, driving license

2) Residential ID - proof of address e.g. utility bill, bank statement, tenancy agreement (must be dated within the last 3 months)

Acceptance onto the practice registered list will be completed on receipt of the required identification documents.

What happens next?

The information you provide on the form is then entered onto our clinical system (EMIS Web) for the purposes of registration.

EMIS then sends a request to NHS England to request that you are registered with the practice and that your medical record is transferred to us electronically.  Any manual records held at your previous practice will be sent via Primary Care Support England (PCSE).

On successful registration the form is scanned onto your medical record and the paper copy is destroyed by the practice.  Please see our practice privacy notice for more details.

Practice Catchment Area

If you live in Penwortham or Hutton, you live within our catchment area.

Out of Area Registrations

GP practices may register patients who live outside their practice area without home visiting and other urgent care obligations when patient is at home and too ill to attend their registered practice.

We will consider an application from someone, requesting registration at this surgery.  If it is deemed to be clinically appropriate for someone to register at the surgery, the practice will complete the registration process for that person.

Any person requesting to be registered will, in the first instance, have to complete a Registration Request Form and this will then be considered by the practice.

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.
