Join The Practice
To register with our practice, please firstly make sure you are within the practice boundary. We cover; Leyland, Farington, Farington Moss, Clayton-Le-Woods and Moss Side. The reception team will need to see 2 forms of ID for each patient, for example; driving licence / passport for photo ID and a bank statement / utility bill for proof of address.
You will then be asked to complete a registration form and health questionnaire and will be invited to make an appointment with the Health Care Assistant for a New Patient Health Check.
Please bear in mind the initial consultation will be for a general Health Check only as clinicians' will not have your medical records. Medical records can take a few weeks to reach the practice.
Please note that until your records are received and unless we have proof of your medication only acute prescriptions will be issued until your medical records have been checked. This is to ensure no mistakes are made on prescriptions and to ensure your safety.
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.
