Register as a New Patient
All patients registered at Eaglescliffe Medical Practice have a named GP. If you are unsure who your named GP is then please contact one of our receptionists who will be happy to advise you.
Anyone living within our practice area can register by completing the forms in the application pack available from reception or by simply printing, completing and returning the forms below to the practice.
Please DO NOT POST forms as this may delay your registration with the practice if we are unable to verify any necessary details with you.
Out of Area Registrations
As from May 2021 - this service is temporarily withdrawn. If you are already registered as an OOA and move address, we are no longer able to keep you on our list and you will be requested to register with a GP practice in your locality.
Proof of address is needed upon completion of registration forms for each member of your household (except children). If you wish to registered for GP Online Services, Photographic ID will be required in addition to proof 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.
