How to register

Please be aware that we are currently experiencing a very high volume of new registrations each week therefore we are currently only accepting patients who live in our inner boundary which has been agreed with our ICB commissioners. It is currently taking at least 10 days before new registrations are completed.  If you urgently need to consult with a Clinician whilst awaiting confirmation of registration, due to a new problem that you are newly experiencing, please call us and we will try and accommodate you with a telephone consultation with a Clinician or arrange for you to be seen elsewhere.

To check if you live within the inner Practice boundary, please email us at: registration.headstonerdsurgery@nhs.net with your address including postcode and we will get back to you.

You can register by:

You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

Temporary patients

If you are not registered with the Surgery you will be unable to see one of our doctors unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This means you can be registered with our Practice and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with our Practice.

Overseas Visitors

In April 2015, changes were made to the way the NHS charges overseas visitors for NHS hospital care. These changes also affect some former residents of the UK. The changes were made so that the NHS does not lose out on income from migrants, visitors or former residents of the UK, who may be required to pay for their hospital treatment costs while in England.
