New Patients

Register as New Patient

The practice is open for new registrations in the area covered by the practice: Redcar, Marske, New Marske, Kirkleatham, Wilton and Dunsdale.

Patients who reside in our practice area and wish to join our list can collect registration forms from reception or download them from the practice website. All new patients are invited to attend for a new patient check to enable us to record details of medical history.  All patients will be allocated a named GP.

All Patients have a right to express a preference of practitioner and preferences will be recorded at the new patient check appointment. We will endeavour to comply whenever possible.

Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, all patients registered at any GP practice are required to be allocated a named accountable GP.

The named accountable GP is responsible for the care and support that our surgery provides to you.  The named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensures they are delivered where required to each of their patients.

The Practice will inform patients verbally of their named accountable GP on request.

The Practice has allocated a named GP for each patient.  However, if a patient requests a different named GP, reasonable effort will be made to accommodate their preference.

Having a named accountable GP does not prevent you from seeing any other GP or clinician in the practice if you wish to do so.

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

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.
