Registration Medical

If you are over 40 we may make you an appointment with our Health Care Assistant for a new patient health check. This appointment enables us to collect medical information before your medical records arrive from your previous practice. It is also the start of screening for other medical problems. If your medical history is particularly complex, our HCA will book you a follow-up appointment with a GP.

If you are on any regular medication please ensure you have received sufficient from your previous practice before registering as we may not be able to issue a repeat prescription immediately.

We aim to register you as quickly as possible and within 5 working days. If you have given us a UK mobile phone number, we will send you a text message to confirm you have been registered. If you do not receive such a message, you can email us at for an update.

Once registered, you can access online:

>Full online access to your records, which you need to request via the Airmid app. Please select “Organisations” and then click on “The Town Surgery”. Next to “Full Clinical Record”, you can click on “Request access”. We will then receive your request and start to process it. For children, there are restrictions and you need to discuss it further with us.
>Help/advice via an online consultation which you can access through the NHSApp or our practice website here.

For Guidance on overseas visitors please please visit GOV.UK for further information.

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

To register as a temporary resident you will need to complete a Temporary Resident Form. Please return the completed form to the surgery.

You can register as a temporary resident with a GP in England if you are in the area for longer than 24 hours but less than three months.
