Join the practice
As long as you are living within the practice boundaries (see map below) you can register with the practice.
New patient packs can be collected within the opening times of the Practice. Completed packs need to be returned by the patient on a Thursday between 13:30 - 16:00 hrs to be able to join the Practice.
Completed registration forms must be handed in at reception, any patient or their representative over 18 years of age must provide the Practice with some form of identification for the patient who wishes to be registered i.e. birth certificate, passport, driving license or utility/household bill stating a Barry address.
All patients will need their NHS number to register at this Practice.
Prior to joining the Practice please ensure you have at least 1 month supply of medication from your previous practice.
Please be reassured, all information supplied is completely confidential. At the time of registration, you will be invited in to attend a new patient health examination. It is very important that you attend this appointment as we may not receive your full medical records for up to 8 weeks.
If you require any further information, please speak to a member of staff.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
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.

How to Register
Please complete the following documents:

If you have a repeat prescription from your previous surgery, please drop this into the surgery so we can add your medication to our records.
Please ensure that you complete your NHS number on the registration form, as the Practice cannot register you unless we have this. If you are unsure of your number, please contact your current practice who will provide it.
If you require any further information regarding registration, please speak to a member of staff or e-mail email@example.com
Alternatively, you can collect a paper form from the surgery to complete which can be dropped back to the surgery on a Thursday afternoon between 1:30pm and 4pm.
