New Patients

Register as New Patient

We accept patients on to our list if they reside within the practice area. To register please use the online registration below which can be found under the section called 'Register with the Practice'.  Alternatively you can attend the surgery where you will be given a paper copy of this form to complete.

If you take any regular medication you will need to see a doctor first to enable you to get a new prescription. Once you have registered with the practice an appointment will be made for this. You will need to bring a list of your current medication to this appointment.  Each individual member of the family who are taking medication will require a separate appointment.

It is helpful to bring a urine sample to these appointments. Sample bottles are available at reception.

You will be registered with the practice. Appointments can be made with any doctor in the practice pending availability.

Register with the practice

We are using a new online service called Register with a GP surgery that makes it easy to register with this GP surgery.

Just fill in this quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Paper forms are still available if you need one.

Main Site: Register with Ecclesfield Group Practice

Branch Site: Register with Margetson Practice

Please note: Even though you are registering at one of the above practices (depending on your location), you are registered under 'Ecclesfield Group practice' and are able to access services at both of these sites.  

Identification Requirements

Any patient wishing to register with this practice, either temporarily or permanently, may have to provide two forms of identification.

  1. One to verify your registration address.
  2. The other has to be photo identification.

Any of the following can be used as identification:-

  • Passport
  • Driving Licence
  • National Insurance Card P NHS Card
  • Current Utility Bill/Bank Statement
  • Birth Certificate
  • Government Document

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.
