Register as New Patient
The practice serves an area extending as a 3 mile radius from the surgery. Any newcomers to the area, living within this boundary, are welcome to join the practice.
Registration forms can be collected from reception or completed online below. Please be aware if you do not complete both forms below you will not be registered.
If possible also add your NHS number in the form. If you do not know your NHS number then please contact your previous surgery and they will be able to give you this over the phone.
A few patients living outside this boundary, and who have been with the practice for some time, are still registered with Lime Grove. Due to increasing demands upon time, we are not able to accept or retain patients who move outside the 3 mile area.
Change of Address
Any patients who move address within the practice area are asked to notify the administration staff as soon as possible. Patients moving out of the 3 mile radius will be asked to register at a practice in the new area.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill and need medical attention while away from home you can register as a temporary patient up to 14 days at the 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.
If you are away from home and have forgotten your medication you can contact your own GP who hold your medical records and a prescription can be sent to a local pharamacy in the area you are staying.
