Patient Registration

All UK residents have the right within the NHS to be registered with a doctor. We are pleased to register anyone who lives within the practice area.

You can collect the relevant registration form(s) GMS1 from the surgery.

You will need to complete a separate form for each person who wishes to register.

Bring the completed forms into reception along with your proof of ID and proof of your address.

Examples of proofs of identity: Passport, Driving Licence, Medical Card, Birth or Marriage Certificates

Examples of proofs of address: Utility Bill, Bank statement, Rent Book or Council tax statement


Register for online services

We all know that sinking feeling of trying to get through to a busy GP Practice – all of the staff are patients somewhere too and face the same issues.

Alnwick Medical Group would like to make things as easy as possible for our patients [on our limited resources] and would encourage all patients and their families to sign up to our online services.

The more patients who can use automated services the better – it gives us the time we need to give to patients with more complex queries or needs.

If you would like to apply for online access we would recommend you use the NHS app. If you decide to use the Systmone app please call and speak to one of our reception team who will be able to guide you through the process.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while you are away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see someone to receive emergency treatment from a local GP, you can register as a temporary patient.

You can be registered temporarily for up to 3 months. This process means that you will be temporary registered at our surgery but will also remain a permanent patient at your GP. After that time, you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with the practice.

To register as a temporary patient, simply come into the surgery and fill in a temporary resident form. It will be processed as soon as possible and you will then be able to make an appointment or speak to a Clinician.

Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment.
