Register as a New Patient
If you would like to register with the practice please bring in your medical card if you have one, if not a form is provided along with a general health questionnaire for you to complete. At this time you will be offered an appointment with the practice nurse for a general health check. If you are on regular medication you will be advised to make an appointment with a doctor.
When registering with the practice you may state a preference of which GP you would like to see and this will be recorded in your medical record.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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.

Disabled Patient Facilities
Although we have a dsabled ramp at both the Leven and Beeford sites, the disabled toilet is only available at the Beeford site. This is due to Leven being a Grade 2 listed building.
