Join the Practice
Register as a New Patient
You are very welcome to join our practice if you live within the practice catchment area - which can be seen in image opposite. Please do not hesitate to contact our reception if you wish to check this before completing the necessary registration forms and we would be happy to advise.
To register as a new patient with us, please complete the Esher Green Surgery registration form - there is an adult form and a child form, the Consent form and the NHS Registration form - a GMS1. They can be found in the links below - or there are printed forms you can collect to take away for completion.
We will require to see a form of photographic ID and proof of address.
There is one more form to complete if you would like to create online access to allow ordering of repeat prescriptions, view online appointment availability. Link below.
We will endeavour to register you as soon as possible but please allow at least five working days for the registration process to be complete. After which time you have access medical services at the practice.
It is very beneficial in respect of prescriptions if you can advise us, at the time of registration, which pharmacy you would like to nominate to receive your prescriptions electronically - the prescription will be sent directly to your chosen pharmacy.
Please contact reception for further information.
If you are already a registered patient wishing to request online access, we will ask you to provide proof of identity.
Change of Address
If you move house we need to be informed of your new address in case we need to contact you. You will need to complete a form for each member of your family with your name, old address, new address and telephone number. We will need to see proof of your new address. IF YOUR NEW ADDRESS IS OUTSIDE OF THE PRACTICE CATCHMENT AREA - you must register at a practice local to your new address. There is a 28 day period before your records are returned to the PCSE
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.
