Practice Catchment Area & Location
The practice accepts patients who live within 3 miles to the West, South and East of the Practice and those who live within 5 miles to the North of the practice – please click here to check if you live within the area or speak to reception for further details. If your live in a new build which is not yet updated on the map, please bring in proof of exact location.
Patients are registered with a partner of the practice and may state their choice of doctor from those whose lists are currently open. If the patients registered doctor is unavailable, they will be offered an alternative but staff are asked to book patients in to be seen with their own doctor as much as possible as this helps to ensure continuity of care.
New Patient Registration
A Guide for New Patients:
In your New Patient Pack you will find the following:
- A patient registration form
- A practice brochure
Please return the required forms to the surgery* duly completed together with two forms of identification which can prove you are resident in the local area.
*Please be aware that during the ongoing complications due to COVID-19, we will be accepting new patient registration forms being downloaded and returned to us by email or post to avoid an unnecessary visit to the surgery.
Acceptable forms of identification are:
- Photo Driving Licence
- Bank or Building Society Statement showing your Horsham address
- Utility Bill showing your Horsham address
Unfortunately, if you are unable to produce identification to prove Horsham residence, we may not be able to register you with the practice.
Our receptionist will check your ID and may take a photocopy of your passport or other photo ID.
SystmOnline and NHS App:
We encourage our patients to register for our online services, and include an application form with our new patient registration packs.
You can request for the ability to access appointment booking, medication requesting, record viewing and more:
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.
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.
