When you have completed all of the details, click on the 'Send' button to mail your forms to us.

We recommend that you follow up with a phone call to confirm receipt.
GP2GP patient information leaflet
The Health and Social Care Information Centre has produced a GP2GP information leaflet for practices to distribute to their newly registered patients. The leaflet provides information to new patients about the GP2GP process and their electronic health record, as well as answers to some frequently asked questions. Patient can download Transferring your electronic health record.pdf here.
What if I need to see a GP when I'm away from home?
You may register with us as a temporary resident, either short stay (under 15 days), or long stay (over 15 days but under 3 months).
As a temporary resident we do not have access to your medical record to assist with your consultation. For your safety you must complete this form Temporary residents info sheet and a blue form which will be provided on arrival. Give these to the receptionist who will then complete your temporary registration in readiness for your consultation. If repeat medication is required patients should bring this with them to the first consultation.
