Pre-registration With the Practice

If you wish to pre-register, click on the links below to open the registration form. You will need to choose which medical centre you wish to register at: either Holsworthy and Hatherleigh or Stratton. When you have completed all the details, click on the "Submit" button to email your registration form to us. Please also complete the patient questionnaire form (so we can establish a few brief medical details in advance of the arrival of your medical records). It is helpful if we are able to see two types of ID after registering with us. You may bring them in with you for your first appointment. 

Full details of how to register at a GP practice can be found HERE

Please note - until we have approved and added your registration details to our local system, you will not be registered with us. Please DO NOT fill out an accuRX online consultation until you are fully registered. Please contact us if you need to confirm your registration has been approved and processed. 

Registering for on-line access

Once you have been registered with a practice, you can apply for on-line access. If you wish to register for on-line access to your patient record, order repeat medications, book appointments and check on test results etc. please click HERE

You will need to have provided ID to get on-line access to your medical record.

 

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill whilst 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.

FIND YOUR NHS NUMBER

Your NHS number is a 10 digit number, like 485 777 3456.

You can find your NHS number in any documents or letters sent to you by the NHS, such as your:

  • prescriptions
  • test results
  • hospital referral letters
  • appointment letters

You do not need to know your NHS number to use NHS services, but it can be useful to have it. 

You can find your NHS number online by using the Find your NHS number service or by using NHS App.
