New Patients

Register as a new patient.

If you live within our practice area, you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure should you need assistance. 

 

Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require TWO forms of photographic ID, so please bring this in to the surgery once you have completed the required forms. 

 

You will need to complete the new patient registration form and health questionnaire below which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. The 'new patient' pack can be found below. We would kindly appreciate if you could complete this.

Can I register if I live in...?

We are open for new registrations and are particulaley delighted to welcome families registering together. We accept patients from Haverhill and many surrounding villages- the map below shows the boundaries in our area. Unfortunately, we cannot accomodate those patients livign with Wickambrook, Denston, Clare, or Ashen. 

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill when 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 at your permanent surgery. After three months, you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with the 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.
