New Patient Registration

Thank you for choosing to register with us. In order to register you need to live in the London Borough of Newham.

If you live outside this area, your registration will be considered Out of Area and you will not have access to certain domiciliary services, such as home visits from a GP. Please contact us to discuss what it will mean for you to be an ‘out of area’ patient.

 

Register Online

Our practice is offering online registration, this is open to all residents in Newham.

If you want to come in person to register, we will be happy to help you. Please check that your postcode is within our catchment area.

Registrations will be processed within 2 working days.

You do not have to show any ID or proof of address to register.

Please note that we cannot currently accept registrations for children online. You need to be over 16 to use this service. Children are very welcome to register with us, but a parent or guardian needs to visit the practice to complete the form in person. As a security measure all information provided on this form will be sent as a secure, encrypted email.

 

Temporary Registrations

If you are a patient who is not registered with the practice but are suffering from an urgent medical condition, we can register you as a temporary patient in order to give you advice and treatment until you can be seen by your own GP. You will be required to fill out a short form at reception and we will do our best to ensure you are seen by a healthcare professional as soon as possible.

Please note that as a temporary patient we may not be able to refer you to secondary care or community services.

 

Out of Area Registrations

New arrangements introduced from January 2015 give people greater choice when choosing a GP practice. Patients may approach any GP practice, even if they live outside the practice area, to see if they will be accepted on to the patient list.

The new arrangements mean that GP practices now have the option to register patients who live outside the practice area but without any obligation to provide home visits. Out of area registration remains voluntary for GP practices meaning that patients may be refused because they live outside the practice area.

Your application, which requires that you complete the registration form provided, will be reviewed by a clinician in the practice.

The purpose of the review is to establish whether it is clinically appropriate and practical, in your individual case, to be registered without access to home visits. If it is not possible to reach a decision from the initial information provided the clinician may:

  • Ask you or the practice you are currently registered with questions about your health to help decide whether to register you in this way
  • Ask you questions why it is practical for you to attend this practice

If you are accepted you will be able to attend the practice and, other than home visits, you will receive the full range of services provided as normal at the surgery. If you require referral to other services we will agree with you whether these are best carried out close to your home or the practice depending on the circumstances.

If you have an urgent care need and the surgery cannot help you at home we may ask you to contact NHS 111 and they will put you in touch with a local service.

We may decide that it is not in your best interests or practical for you to be registered in this way. If this is the case we will let you know within two weeks and your registration will not progress any further.

If your registration is accepted but your health needs change in the future we may review your registration and invite you to register with a GP practice closer to your home.

If you wish to proceed with your application please complete the form below. As soon as we have this information a decision can be made.
