To register as a new patient at the practice. Please follow the registration process below.
Check You Live Within The Boundary Area
If you are already a patient and are about to move to a new address please let the reception team know by completing our change of details form. They can decide whether or not you are still within our catchment area. If you are not, and you would like to stay with the practice, please make an Out Of Area Request. All cases will be dealt with on an individual basis, by the practice manager and your named doctor.
If you would like some information about how to register for a GP more information can be found on the NHS website
In particular there is information if you are:
- Currently homeless
- Former Armed Services Member
- Moving to or visiting England
- Wanting to register temporarily

Complete Our Patient Registration Forms
If you live within the boundary area, please complete our new patient registration form
For identification purposes, you will need to upload proof of ID and proof of address at the end of the form. Proof of ID can be a passport or driving licence. Proof of address can be a utility bill (gas, electricity or water) or bank statement – dated within the last 3 months.
Book a New Patient Health Check
Once the registration process is complete you will receive a confirmation text from the registration department.
All new patients with a chronic disease are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Visit our appointments page to find out how to book your new patient health check
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 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.
Your Named GP
You may be aware that all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them. All patients registered at Stanford Medical Centre already have a named GP though this may not be the GP that you regularly see, or have ever seen.
Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that we provide to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice but it is important to maintain continuity of care by seeing the same doctor wherever possible.
You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further with us, please contact us at the above numbers or email us via our secure online form
Please note that our GP's may have to work at other branches to cover sickness, annual leave and branch closures
