Register as New Patient
We are registering new patients for patients that live within the Sidney House and The Laurels published registration boundary. Please note that we no longer accept any NEW patients from the Chelmer Village and Beaulieu Park area. Please speak to reception to make sure you are within the boundary.
We continue to closely monitoring our patient numbers in order to provide the highest level of care and to ensure all residents within our boundary have access to a GP.
You can register at either site. We do require to see ID and current proof of address. We will provide you with a registration pack and take you through the registration procedure. If you have been issued with an NHS medical card it will be helpful if you bring this with you. If you have been registered previously with a doctor in the UK, you will need to know their name and address to complete your registration.
We will not refuse an application for registration on the basis of the applicant's race, gender, age, sexual orientation, social class, religion, appearance, disability or medical condition. We will however refuse applications made by those living outside our practice area.

Temporary Patient 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.
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.
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.
