Grasmere Surgery

Open Monday to Friday 8am to 6.30pm

How to register

If you live within our practice area you can register at the Surgery by either:

  • completing the online Patient Registration Form
  • ask at reception for registration forms (you will need to bring these with you to your appointment)
  • or ring 01942 483330 for an appointment to register.

You also need to bring a sample of urine (pot will be provided) and proof of identity.

All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

Changes to personal details

Please let us know if you change your name, address or telephone number.

New babies should be registered with a doctor as soon after leaving hospital 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 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.
