Register as New Patient
Providing you have recently moved into our practice area you can register with us. It’s easy! Simply call into the practice between 10.30am and 4.30pm and either bring in a completed New Patient Questionnaire and GMS1 form or fill them out in reception.
This form is available in the Information Centre and when registering your medical records will be automatically transferred from your previous practice.
Proof of residence in the form of a utility bill, passport or photo ID is required and in some cases ‘proof of employment’ or letter from employer.
The boundaries of the Practice show we are large in terms of geographical size, with the majority of the land classified as rural.
We are currently responsible for the healthcare of approximately 12,742 patients but our current premises have been built with growth in mind; therefore we are equipped to take up to 14,000 patients.
The Daventry District is a large, mainly rural area of 257 square miles in the west of Northamptonshire. It is the largest district in the county but, after Corby, has the second smallest population with approximately 78,000 residents – the majority of whom live among the district’s 78 villages.
The district which lies within the Milton Keynes/South Midlands Growth area has one town – Daventry.
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.
