Register with our practice

We accept patients from Bishop’s Stortford and surrounding areas. In welcoming you to our practice, we suggest that all new patients attend for an initial health review with a practice nurse. Each member of the family will be asked to complete a health questionnaire at registration as it can take months for your notes to arrive from your previous doctor.

Temporary Residents

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.

You can download the Temporary Services Form below and return to the practice at any of our address locations.

Accessing someone else's information

Medical records are confidential, so you can only access someone else’s record if you’re authorised to do so. If you wish to grant a person access to your records and/or collect results, discuss medication and to act on your behalf, please download and return a signed consent form to any of our GP branches. It is important that you understand the risks of granting access to others and that you are able to keep yourself and your information safe.
