Online Access: proof of identity

To gain online access to your record, for security reasons, you will have to attend the practice in person to provide proof of identity.

Patients over the age of 16 years can have online access to their medical record and additional facilities such as ordering repeat prescriptions and the booking of some appointments. We require proof of identity to be able to give you online access to your medical record. At the time of registering or applying for online access, please supply proof of identity and of current address. PLEASE NOTE: these should be separate documents, for example we cannot accept a driving licence as both photographic ID and proof of address.  Acceptable documents can be:

  • photo ID: passport or photo driving licence
  • proof of address: bank or other financial statements, but not bil

Subject Access Requests

If you need an electronic copy of your whole medical history, you will need to complete a Subject Access Request form. These requests take up to 28 days to complete and will be securely emailed to you when complete.

The Subject Access Request form can be collected from Reception and needs to be completed and returned with 1 form of photo ID.

Out of Area Registration

Where it is clinically appropriate and practical to register, we now accept new registrations from patients who work in the local area but reside outside our registration area. Patients registered this way would not be entitled to a home visit from the practice. However, if you live outside the practice area and need a home visit, please contact NHS 111 in order to be seen by a practice closer to where they live.

For further information about this type of registration, please call the surgery. To learn more visit the NHS website.

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.

Your Named GP

The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. Therefore to do this fairly and impartially, we have selected patients by surname to match to a doctor.

We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times.

You do not need to take any further action and will be informed of your named GP in due course. In the meantime, if you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please contact our reception team.

Advice for Veterans

It is important to register with a GP, rather than wait until you need treatment.
