If you are in the Lambert Medical Centre catchment area you can register by completing a form available from reception. To save time you can also download and print a registration form. You will need to complete this by hand and bring it to the surgery.
To allow us to provide you with a high standard of care, you will be asked to fill in a short questionnaire detailing the medical history for each patient registering. You can download and complete the new patient questionnaire here .
We also ask that you bring some ID such as passport or driving license and something showing you new address such as a utility bill or rental agreement.
Guide to GP Services
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 here: RCGP leaflet
If you require any forms or information leaflets in large print or another language, please contact the surgery.
We also have information if you are 13-16 and would like to know more about GP services
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.
Download and print a temporary resident registration form. You will need to complete this by hand and bring it to the surgery.
