Register as a New Patient

We are currently accepting new patients to Pennine Surgery based in the local area. Please use the map and postcode checker opposite to see if you qualify.

To register you will need you to visit the surgery to complete a registration form and health questionnaire. Alternatively you can complete online versions via the links below.

We also require one of the following:

  • Evidence of your Name, Date of Birth & Address. EG. Passport or Medical Card
  • An existing Health Card (with NHS number)

If your circumstances mean that you are unable to provide the above documentation. Please let the practice know when you provide your completed registration forms.

Once you have been registered, you may wish to arrange a new patient check. At this appointment, the nurse will check your height, weight and blood pressure. While it is not compulsory, it helps us to provide the best care for our patients.

Temporary 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.
