For the next 6 months, we have made the decision to close our new patient list so please do not try to register with us. We hope to reopen them in 6 months time.
To register with Haverhill Family Practice, you must live in the surrounding area. The map opposite shows the villages we accept patients from. However, we no longer accept patients from Wickhambrook, Denston, Clare or Ashen.
Anyone living in Bury St Edmunds, Linton, Cambridge, Newmarket or Chedburgh cannot be registered here and over time these patients will be notified and removed.
Patients need to register at a surgery closer to their home. Please see the boundary map opposite for registrations we will accept (excluding those stated above).
To register with us, please fill in the online form below or print the form here and drop it into the surgery.
We do require TWO forms of identification, one must be photographic (passport or drivers license).
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill when 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 at your permanent surgery. After three months, you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with the 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.
