Register as a New Patient
You can register by calling into the surgery and completing a registration form. Please bring with you documentary proof of your address i.e. a utility bill and photo ID.
When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see the practice nurse for a new patient health check. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.
New patients are allocated a GP; please ask at reception if you wish to know your allocated GP.
What Happens Next
The information on the forms will speed up the process of getting your records from your previous practice. You do not need to inform your existing practice that you are moving, although it may be courteous to do so.
We register patients from Horndon on the Hill, Orsett, Bulphan and Langdon Hills.

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 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.
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.
