New Patient Registration


We welcome you to join Nightingale Practice.

Our patient registration policy does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition.

Registration can take up to 48 hours,  and once you are registered, we are able to offer a GP appointment within 24 hours. If you are needing more urgent care, let us know.

How to Register

Paper Form

If you are not able to complete an online form, come into the practice to fill out a paper form.


It can take up to several weeks before we receive your medical records, therefore if you are on any current medication and need a repeat prescription we ask that you contact your previous GP for a copy of your current repeat medications.

Contact from the practice once you are registered

You should receive a text (or a phone call if you don't have a mobile phone) from the practice to let you know when you are registered.

You may be asked to book an appointment for a new patient check or health check.

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.

Choosing a GP

When you register we will allocate you a  named, accountable GP. If you wish for the GP that you have been allocated to be changed, please contact the Practice and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.

Please note: You can still make an appointment to see any doctor in the practice.
