Register with us as a New Patient




New Patient Registration

We are currently accepting new patients.

To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice area.


It can take up to 5 working days for you to be registered with Parkside Group Practice.

To register at Parkside, each patient will need to complete the following forms:

Adult Registration Form

Child (Under 16) Registration Form

Two forms of ID are required. Photo ID in the form of a passport or a driving licence; and proof of address such as a utility bill, bank statement or council tax bill dated within the last three months. A scan of your ID can be uploaded to the registration form


Temporary Registration

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 at Parkside, please visit the practice to complete a form.

Your Named GP

The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. Therefore to do this fairly and impartially, we have selected patients by surname to match to a doctor.

We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Your named GP will not be available at all times.

You do not need to take any further action and will be informed of your named GP in due course. In the meantime, if you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
