All our Patients have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. We listen when Patients make us aware of their preference as to which GP that is. If you are registering as a new patient you will see an option to choose, you will also receive a text message giving you the GP’s name, alternatively you can contact the practice if you wish to know who this is.
If you wish to register and you live in the practice boundary please complete the form below on a PC (some mobiles/tablets might work but we know there are problems). This is now in 'Word' format so you can save it and finish or submit it later.

When you complete a form to register with this health centre it is important that we have your full address and telephone number (landline and mobile) so that we can contact you easily.
It is vitally important that if you change your address you let us know so that we can keep your medical records up to date. You should also inform any other healthcare worker, for example hospital consultants, to avoid misdirection of appointment letters.
Your contact details are important to us because if any correspondence or phone calls cannot get to you it can cause delays or cancellations of hospital appointments, test results or appointments at the health centre.
International students should let us know when you are due to leave England and return to your home country.
If you are away from Leicester and need treatment from a GP you should ask to be treated as a temporary resident, otherwise your medical notes will be recalled by the Health Authority and you would no longer be registered with us.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:
If you have a 'medical emergency' while away from home you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for up to 14 days. Please advise the receptionist of the emergency to help them to offer you the correct service.
If it isn't a medical emergency and you are staying in the practice boundary, 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 register as a permanent patient.
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.
