Register as New Patient
We welcome new patients who reside within our catchment area and registration is easy. Please CLICK HERE for our practice area and to check whether your address falls within our catchment area.
We can never register patients from the borough of Camden and Islington. N8 post codes are almost always within the practice area. The exception is a small area of N8 towards Stroud Green which falls within the borough of Camden and Islington.
To register you simply need to come down in person to the practice during opening hours, ideally between 09:00 – 18:00 (please note we close between 13:00 – 14:00 ). Here you will be asked to fill in some registration forms. You will need proof of identity and address, (passport/driving licence and household bills, for instance). You must also bring your NHS number (which you can obtain from your previous GP if you do not know it) and the details of your previous GP (if you have one) with you.
If you are registering a child or new-born baby, please would you bring in the child's Red Book. If no Red Book is available, please bring in the child's birth certificate or passport. In addition, we ask you to bring in one of the following: child benefit form, NHS card or, if you do not have either of these, the child's passport.
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.
