We ask all new patients to fill in a registration form and to complete a new patient questionnaire. Both of these forms are available to download from the above "Registering Online" tab.
It is important that you provide us with your previous doctor’s name and address. A practice leaflet is provided which includes all the details about the surgery and service we provide. Once we receive the completed forms your registration details will then be added to our computer system, enabling you to contact the surgery and book appointments. If you complete the forms online you will need to attend the surgery to sign these form before being registered at the surgery.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. If you are on any repeat medication you will need to be seen by the GP in a routine appointment before your medication will be issued. Please contact reception for further information.
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 below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. This GP has responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required, based on the GP’s clinical judgement.
This does not mean that you will only see your named GP, you will continue to be able to see any member of the clinical team and your care will still be provided by the most appropriate member of the clinical team here at Park Lane Surgery.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. Please inform us if you wish to change your accountable GP.
To register as a new patient at the centre you must live within our service area. We have provided a detailed description below.

If you wish to pre-register click on the link below to open the form. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Send" button to mail your form to us. You will receive a telephone call from the practice asking you to attend to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct. Once this has been done we will register you with the practice.
When you pre-register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. There is an online version of this file too, which you may fill out and send to us. When you come to the surgery you will be asked to sign this form to confirm that the details are correct.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and take it to the practice reception to register.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
If you have run out of medication please contact your own surgery and ask them to send a prescription to a chemist in this area. You do not need to register with our practice as a temporary resident.
