New Patients

Register as a New Patient

To register with the surgery:

  • The easiest & quickest way to register is via the NHS website
  • Alternatively you may fill out an online registration form
  • Visit reception from 10am to 6pm and collect a paper registration form

As part of the registration process we also strongly recommend that you attend a new patient health check with our Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant.

It is preferred that new patients, where possible, provide identification and proof of address as part of the registration process.

A current passport or photo driving licence will be accepted for identification and a recent utility bill (within the last three months) for proof of address. For children, a birth certificate will be accepted where a passport is unavailable.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.

Disabled Access & Parking

Our modern first floor premises at Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre provides enhanced disability access including dedicated parking spaces with lift access to the GP reception. Our reception team will be happy to help should further assistance be required.

Parking is available in the underground car park at the Greenwood Street entrance but with limited capacity strictly for the duration of your appointment only. Immediately after your appointment has ended you will need to obtain a ticket from reception to exit the car park and this will give you 10 minutes to do so. Unfortunately it is not possible to leave your car in the car park to visit the town centre or carry out general errands and the building owners enforce this by levying a fine for any breaches.
