Register as a New Patient
The practice covers Penistone and its surrounding villages. Please use the map opposite to see if where you live is within the practice area. If you require the map in a larger format click here.
You can register as a patient with the practice by requesting a registration application form and a medical questionnaire form from our reception team. Alternatively you can print-off the required online pre-registration forms below.
The medical questionnaire form provides us with some important information about your health and helps us with your future medical care. You can request a new patient check if you wish. These are usually performed by the practice nurse. Please enquire at reception if you require any further information.
Please ensure you fully complete both respective forms and supply us with your unique NHS number which will assist us and avoid delays with your patient registration.
Please remember to let us know if you change your address, phone number or other details. It helps if we need to contact you about your health or medication. If you are attending hospital, please also keep the hospital department informed of any changes of address
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.
