Register as patient

We are happy to register new patients at Ashley Surgery.  If you live out of our practice area, you may still submit a patient registration form, however, acceptance will depend upon your care needs.  If you have care needs which we consider would be better met through registration with a surgery closer to your home address, we will advise you accordingly.

At the time of registation we ask you, and any other family members who may also be registering, to provide details of your past medical problems and to book a new patient health check with a practice nurse. New patients will be asked to provide identification upon registering, along with evidence of their address. Reception staff will be able to advise you which documents can be accepted as identification.

Alternatively call in to the surgery and collect a copy. Please send the completed form to the surgery or hand in at reception.
 
Remember that records from your previous practice can take up to three months to arrive with us, therefore we will not have a record of your full medical history at the point of registration.

If you move outside of the practice area, we may not be able to continue to provide you with medical treatment.  You may need to re-register with a practice local to your new address to service your care needs.

You can find out more about the electronic transfer of patient information here.

 

Visitors and temporary residents

If you are in the area for a short time and require medical treatment you are allowed to register with this practice as a temporary resident. This gives you the same access to general medical services as registered patients but either for a period of 24 hours up to 15 days, or between 15 days and three months.

If you are going to be in the area for longer than three months you should register fully with a GP.

If you are registered with another practice locally it is essential that you attend your own practice where your medical notes are available.

 

Overseas Visitors

People from abroad are eligible for free treatment on the NHS in the case of an emergency. Broadly, this means that if, in the opinion of the GP, your condition requires emergency treatment you will not be charged for a consultation with a GP.

If you require treatment or medication for a pre-existing condition and you are not a citizen of the European Union you will be charged a fee, which then should be claimed back via your insurance company.
