Join the Practice

We regret to inform you that we are undertaking a temporary list suspension. This means that we will not be registering new patients at our Practice.

This decision has not been easy to make but after very careful consideration we feel our duty of care to our current patient list in these unprecedented times must be our priority.

We will continue to register: 

  • New born or adopted babies of parents already registered with us
  • First degree relatives of patients already registered at the Practice who are living at the same address as registered patients and are still living within our catchment area.

For assistance with finding a GP Surgery in Sussex to register with, please contact the NHS Sussex Allocations Teams on 07425 616194. Or email stating the full names of everyone who needs to register, and your full address. The team will provide you with the available practice options and arrange for an allocation if necessary.

Registration Forms

Please ensure you are downloading and completing the correct registration form (you will need a GMS1 form for each application). Incomplete forms can result in a delay in getting you registered with the Practice.

Please note it can take up to 72 hours to register you with the Practice.

New Patient Health Checks

All new patients are encouraged to book for a New Patient Health Check. This will be carried out by the Practice HCA and can be arranged by the Reception team. Please book your Health Check as soon after returning your registration form as possible. All eligible patients will receive a text messaging inviting them for their New Patient Check (children are not eligible for New Patient checks)

Temporary 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.
