Our Practice Area
We are currently welcoming new patients!
We are open to registration to any patients living within the practice area, which covers Easton, Eastville, St Judes, St Agnes, St Pauls, St Werburghs, Montpelier, Hotwells, Clifton, Redland, Westbury Park, Bishopston, Horfield, Stapleton and most of Fishponds, Speedwell, St George, Redfield, Lawrence Hill and Barton Hill.
Please talk to our Patient Services Team on 01179 027145 to clarify whether an address is in the practice area.
How To Register
Please complete the New Patient Registration Form (GMS1) using the link below.
- details of your last address and your last doctor’s name and address, which will be needed to complete the registration form
- your exact date of arrival if you are new in this country
- your NHS number if you have it (this makes getting you registered much faster
Alternatively, hard copies of this form are available from Patient Services at the Reception desk.
After completing the forms online or on paper, please then attend the Practice to complete the registration process.
- We also politely request that you bring in a form of ID where possible.
- You will be asked to use our self care area to record your height, weight and blood pressure.
There are practical reasons why we might need to be assured that people are who they say they are, or to check where they live. Seeing some form of ID will help to ensure the correct matching of a patient to the NHS central patient registry, thereby ensuring any previous medical notes are passed onto us as quickly as possible.
All registered patients have a named GP. This is the GP who will have overall responsibility for your care whilst you are registered with the Practice. If you wish to know the GP who has been allocated to you, please ask at reception. If you would prefer to be allocated another named GP, please advise us of this and we endeavour to accommodate your request.
The provision of a named GP does not, in any way, restrict or prevent you from booking appointments with another GP or with our Nurses or Healthcare Assistants. All our clinician staff have access to your computerised medical records.
For patients who are already registered and who are changing address, we ask you to complete a change of address form. This form is available at reception or online here.
Please ensure every field is completed and that the names of all the people who are changing address are clearly stated. We need to see proof of address before we can change your address details and we will also need to check that your new address is within the practice area before we can accept your continuing registration at that address.
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.
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.
