How to Register
Please see the following information about how to registering with a GP surgery.
To register as a patient with our practice, you will need to complete a registration form and new patient questionnaire.
This can be done online using a new service called Register with a GP surgery that makes it easy to register with us.
Just fill in this quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.
Paper forms are still available if you need one.
These can be obtained at reception at both of our practices or you can download a copy of the forms by clicking on the following links:
Once you have completed the forms, please present them at either practice with 2 forms of identification (one must contain a photo).

Please Note: We do not accept patients living outside of our practice area. If you do live outside of this boundary you will need to register at a practice in your local area.If you reside within Wales, you will need to register with a practice in Wales as guidelines for NHS England do not apply.
If you are ill whilst away from home or if you are not registered with a practice but need to see a doctor, you can receive emergency treatment from a 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 at City Walls simply contact our reception.
Note: 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.
Temporary resident registration forms should be available at all practices. Alternatively, you can download a copy of the form by clicking on the following link:
