To register as a patient at Fieldhead Surgery, please call in to collect a new patient registration pack. In order to register at the practice you need to be within our practice area and have proof of address that you currently live within this area. Please bring two forms of ID at least one of which must be a photo ID and one to show proof of address. We request ID upon registration for as a standard for security reasons though we are obliged to accept registrations for patients who cannot provide ID or proof of address.
All new patients are allocated a Named GP upon registration. This is an administrative task only and does not affect your choice of clinician within the surgery.
When you have registered as a new patient, we will arrange for your medical records to be transferred to the surgery from your previous surgery. Please be aware that the transportation of paper records can take a couple of weeks and this is beyond our control.
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.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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 staying in the practice area and need to see a doctor but cannot attend your usual surgery, you can access GP services as a temporary resident. Please contact the surgery to request an appointment and gives details of the address in our practice area that you are staying. We will arrange an appointment for you and request that you arrive slightly earlier to complete a temporary patient form. Alternatively you can download the form using the link below and bring it with you to your appointment.
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.
