Register as New Patient

The practice provides personal medical services to patients who live within an agreed geographical area determined by the practice.

If you live within our area you can ask to be registered with the practice and, providing the practice list is not closed, you may be registered as a patient with the practice.

Please enter your postcode opposite to check if you reside within our catchment area.

The practice will accept new patient registrations for those residents with a WR5 post code (excluding Kempsey & Littleworth). For clarification the practice will continue to register patients from the development on the former Norton Barracks site.

The practice will also accept new patient registrations from residents who live within a one kilometre area of Crowle Village School and also residents of the village of Broughton Hackett.

The practice will continue to accept new patients from Norton Hall Nursing Home which is just outside this area to maintain the agreement and commitment of the practice to Norton Hall Nursing Home.

All new patients registering with the practice will be requested to complete a medical questionnaire and registration form. 

Practice Area

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.

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.

Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:

Disabled Patient Facilities

All medical facilities are fully accessible for disabled patients including lifts to the first floor.

A portable hearing loop is also available for use by patients with hearing difficulties; please ask for this at reception.

Change of Address

Please let us know as soon as possible if your address changes. Use the postcode checker at the top of this page to check whether you are still in our catchment area. 

You may use the online form below to notify us of your change of details. If you don't wish to use the online form then drop into the practice and pick up a paper form. We would usually need patients to present to surgery to show proof of address, but in current times, proof via email will be acceptable. This must be an official document, ideally a driving licence, utility bill or similar.
