Register as New Patient
Please note, due to covid-19 we would recommend completing the online forms to reduce the number of people frequenting the surgery.
We are open for new registrations and are particularly delighted to welcome families registering together.
We accept patients from Haverhill and many surrounding villages. The map opposite shows the 19th-century boundaries in this area. If you are on our map we can usually accommodate you.
PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE BY COMPLETING THE FORM BELOW (New Patient Registration Form and New Patient Pack Questionnaire).
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU COMPLETE ALL THE FORMS AS MISSING INFORMATION WILL DELAY YOUR REGISTRATION WITH OUR PRACTICE.
We require 2 forms of ID when registering (preferably photographic and proof of your current address). Unfortunately, we can no longer register patients from Wickambrook, Denston, Clare, Ashen or Ridgewell.
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire alongside the registration form. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.
There are printable versions of both forms below.
You can also register online by filling in the forms below. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the forms to confirm that the details are correct.
Note: by sending this form you will be transmitting information about yourself across the internet. Although we make every effort to ensure this information is secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
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.
