Register as New Patient
If possible please bring your medical card to the surgery, along with two proofs of identity, one which must confirm your address and the other some form of photo identification.
If you don't have a medical card you will need to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Online pre-registration versions of both forms are available below.
All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Please note that you are not obliged to attend the doctor to whom you are registered; it is the policy of the practice to allow patients to choose whichever doctor in the partnership they wish to see.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Our practice covers:
- Pentyrch / Creigiau (Tyn-Coed Road to Llantrisant Road)
- Fairwater (from Keyston Road to Western Ave)

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.
