New Patients & Registration

Register as New Patient

Registration.  To register as a patient at Berrycroft Community Health Centre you will need to complete a GMS1 registration form for yourself and each member of your household.  You are also requested to complete a Health Questionaire - there is a seperate questionaire for adults, children and babies. 

Please check your address using the boundary map on this page before submitting forms as we will not accept any new registrations outside of our boundary. 

You can either register by popping into the surgery and speaking to reception or register online. Please visit:

We will ask for proof of Identification (usually passport or driving license) and proof of address. 

New Baby.  If you wish to register your new baby(s) at the Practice please complete a New Patient Registration form (GMS1) and the Child Questionairre.  

Once you have registered with us, your medical records will be sent to us from your previous GP.  We estimate that it will take us 5 working days to process your registration and confirm your details.  If you need to see a clinitcian during this period please advise the Reception team that your new registration is being processed.

Online Access Registration.  As well as using this website many of our services can be accessed using 2 applications  - Ask NHS for urgent on the day appointments and the NHS App for requesting repeat prescriptions, checking test results and to view your notes.  Please do register for these applications using the link here as we believe this will improve your access to the services we provide.

Your Named GP

All patients registered with the practice will have been allocated a named accountable GP, who is responsible for you overall care. However, you can book appointments with any of the GP's. If you have a preference to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request. If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit. 

Check whether your address falls within our practice boundary

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you become unwell while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor in the UK but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a permanent patient. Please be aware that this does not include referrals for further treatment in secondary care.   

To register as a temporary patient, please contact the practice. 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; or if you are already registered at a GP practice in the UK. 

Non-English Speakers

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.
