New Patient Registration
Our practice area is to the north of the A14 and includes the villages of Willingham, Longstanton, Rampton, Over, Swavesey & Northstowe.
Registration packs are available from reception and the receptionist on duty will advise you of the registration procedure and will give you details about our practice. We will need proof of address and ID in order to register you.
Although you will be formally registered with one of the partners they are not all present every day of the week. You may choose to see any doctor you wish but it is advisable if possible to see the same doctor for one particular problem as both investigation and treatment take time.
As a new patient, you will be invited to make an appointment for yourself and your family to attend for a New Patient Health Check. You MUST make a GP appointment to set up any repeat medication requests, as this is not carried forward from your previous surgery.
Routine appointments can be made in advance. We try to accommodate same day emergencies at the end of the morning.
Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
