Register as New Patient


We register between 30-50 new patients every week and our patient list is open to all people living within the published practice area (N19 post code). Call in at reception to fill out the NHS Registration (GMS1) Form and New Patient Questionnaire or download them from the above “Registering Online” tab. If you live in N6, N8, N4 or N7 and your borough is in Islington or Haringey - we may also accept your registration but we will not be able to provide home visits to these areas. (Over 16's only). You will need to complete a disclaimer on the registering online tab if outside N19.

You may also be given some other short forms to complete when you come to register.

Your medical records could take up to 3 months to arrive, or you may not have had any previous medical history in this country. It is therefore very important that we gather as much information from you as possible when you join the practice.

Please make sure you come for a 15 minute New Patient Health Check with our healthcare assistant or one of the practice nurses. They will talk to you about our services and ensure that your basic healthcare details are correctly recorded on our computerised database. They will do blood pressure and urine tests and talk to you about your current/past medical history and also your family health history - all these are very important in assessing risk factors for medical conditions like coronary heart disease and diabetes.

Please make sure that you don't miss out on this important introduction to our service - it will help our clinicians to give you the very best service.

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.
