Register as a New Patient
To register with the Constable Country Medical Practice patients need to collect a New Patient Pack from reception or download the registration forms from this page as soon as possible after coming to the area, complete and return the appropriate forms to reception. If you are currently taking medication please arrange an appointment with a doctor for your medications to be added to your notes.
Children under the age of 5 will be referred to the local health visitor who will then contact the Parent/Guardian.
You can download our registration forms below and, once you have completed them return them to reception.
Please note you must provide the name of your previous doctor. If you do not know, or cannot remember, please contact your previous surgery for the necessary information. We need this information to be able to register you with our practice.
Online Pre-registration Forms
If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" 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.
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.
