To register as a patient ask at reception or telephone for details.
Newly registered patients will be invited for a consultation with the healthcare assistant. This will enable us to ask you about any past medical problems you may have. Please bring any over the counter medicines you take to this consultation as well as a sample of urine.
In line with current health service policy you will be asked for proof of residence when you register. This can be a bank statement or a utility bill, NOT a mobile phone or credit card statement.
The practice area covers a 7 mile radius. This extends to the border on the city side and on the Waterside takes in Lettershandoney, Eglinton, Tirbracken Road, Currynerin, Trench Road, Duncastle Road, New Buildings, and Magheramason.

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 have up to 14 days to accept you as a temporary resident and do not have to accept you, 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.
Please contact the surgery on 028 7126 5391 for more details.
