New Patient Registration Protocol
To request a replacement medical card please use the following link:
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so it would help if you could provide proof by way of a recent utility bill.
IF you have lost your medical card you will need to complete a registration form. A health questionnaire also be need to be completed which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.
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. You should provide a sample of urine at this appointment.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

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.

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.
Registration Form - Please indicate that this is a temporary registration on the form.

GMS Contract Variation – Patient Registration Area (PRA) Reduction
The Practice has recently gained approval from the Health and Social Care Board to reduce its Patient Registration Area (PRA) from a radius of 10 miles to a mapped area.
The current practice boundary starts at Trooperslane but from Tuesday 1st November 2016 this boundary will move to Irish Gate leading to Albert Road going up to the North Road toward the B90 leading to the Marshallstown Road and then via Beltoy Road over to existing areas of Ballycarry, Magheramorne, Islandmagee, Whitehead and back out through Larne Road to the A2 turning right back onto Irish Gate and onto Albert Road again.
Because of the boundary reduction some patients will be living outside the new PRA but will not be removed from the practice’s patient list. Any new family members of these patients will still be accepted and registered at the Practice. To reiterate, patients who fall between the old and new boundary will still be registered with the practice and will remain so unless they move house outside of the new boundary area. Only in this case will they be asked to re-register at a local Health Centre and be removed from the practice list.
To register at another Health Centre please present at their reception with your current medical card and photographic identification. Business Services Organisation can be contacted for information on local medical practices available for patient registration.
If you move address outside of out practice registration area we will:
