New Patients

Register as New Patient

We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area (see opposite).  

Our car park is adjacent to the surgery and includes parking spaces for disabled visitors.  There is wheelchair access to the premises.

Public transport: Bus number 324 from Huddersfield town centre.

New patients can register by completing form GMS1 available at reception.

All new patients are now offered a screening check by the Healthcare Assistant.  This is for routine checks, i.e. blood pressure, weight, height etc.

Patients are able to see any of the doctors regardless of who they are registered with.  Patients who express a preference will be given the opportunity to see the doctor of their choice at the next available appointment.

Updating Your Details

If you change name, address or telephone number, please let our receptionists know by calling or writing to us. If you move outside the practice area you may need to find a doctor in your new area.

Temporary Patient Registrations

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.

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.
