The security of personal data is of utmost importance to us. We realise how sensitive any information relating to our users’ health is, and we are dedicated to ensuring its safety and privacy. With this in mind, we are implementing two new security measures within Patient Access which should take effect by the end of July.
Security PIN code
In line with data security best practice, we are introducing an additional authentication step for use when signing in to Patient Access. Users will be asked to set a five-digit security PIN code that they will need to enter when signing in to the app, as well as their password.
You can read more about Patient Access security PIN codes.
Mobile phone number
We will be asking all Patient Access users to provide us with a mobile phone number if they have not done so already. This is so that we can further authenticate them if they need to reset their password. Users do not have to provide us with their mobile phone number - it is an optional security measure - but we highly recommend that they do so to help further protect their data.
Find more information about adding and verifying mobile numbers.
We will be emailing all Patient Access users over the next 3 weeks to inform them of these updates and asking them to contact the Patient Access Support team rather than their GP practice if they have any questions. However, it’s still possible that some patients might contact your surgery. If this happens please simply ask them to visit our Patient Access support site where they can contact us directly.

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms that are available from all our receptions or downloadable below. You will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP, but we will do our best to give you an appointment with your preferred GP.
Download the New Patient Registration form (GMS1 form)
New Patient form
If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
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
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 a one off problem. If you are away from home temporarily you can register temporarily for either 14 days or 3 months with a GP who is local to where your temporary address is.
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 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.

Please consider going to a pharmacy before registering with a GP if you have a minor ailment, as they may be able to advise you or offer you treatment. If they cannot they will advise you where is the best place to go to sort out your problem.
If you have a life threatening problem please ring 999 immediately
