New Patients

Register as New Patient

Registration with the practice is open to anyone living within the practice area .

To register, either  collect a set of forms from reception, or print them off below and either hand them in to reception, post them through our letterbox or email to brooksidereception@nhs.net. A seperate form needs to be completed for each person registering.

If you have an appointment the same day you are handing the forms in please arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment to allow our reception staff time to enter your details onto our system.

When handing in the forms, the receptionist will explain how the practice works and give you a Practice Information Leaflet. We offer all new patients from 14 upwards an appointment for a new patient check with a practice nurse. This is best arranged at the time of registering.

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill while away from home and need  emergency treatment from the local GP practice  you can temporarily register with them for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to either register as a temporary or become a 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 surgery 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.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Disabled Patient Facilities

The building was designed to allow full access for disabled patients and wheelchair users and all public areas and consulting rooms are on the ground floor.

If your require any further assistance then please ask any member of staff, or alternatively telephone prior to visiting the surgery and we will arrange for assistance to be available.

The surgery is equipped with a mobile Induction Loop for hearing aid users. This is kept in reception but can be taken into any of the consultation rooms if required. We also have a wheelchair available for use within the surgery.
