Register with us as a New Patient




Live within our boundary area?

We welcome new patients to the surgery who reside within the catchment area. If you would like to join the practice, please being by entering your postcode to see if you are within out boundary.


Who will be your doctor?

Your registration will be with the practice - Lime Tree Surgery. You will be given a named doctor responsible for  care however you can see any of the doctors practising at the surgery. Although you may have to wait longer to see a specific doctor, for continuity of care, we would encourage you to consult the same doctor as far as possible.


Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one urgently 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 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. We are unable to provide repeat medication to temporary registration patients, if you have any further queries please contact our reception team on 01903 264101.
