Register as New Patient
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Please speak to our reception team to find out if your address is in our catchment area. You can only be a registered patient with one GP surgery so if you register with Madryn House Surgery you will be de-registered with your current GP surgery and your medical notes will be sent to us.
At Madryn House we provide a pre-registration appointment to our patients, this ensures that all forms are completed correctly and also to ensure that our patients are provided with the care necessary if they are on medications which need to be reviewed or which require blood tests, persistent monitoring or GP reviews. If needed one of our reception team will book you in with the most appropriate clinician to further your care and make the transition of moving surgeries as smooth as possible. Please mention to our reception staff during the appointment if you have any concerns or questions regarding the surgery or services we provide.
Please call in at the surgery to speak to the reception team about registration.
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.
