New Patients

Register as a New Patient

If you would like to register as a patient with us please see a member of the reception team who will be pleased to help you and provide you with the relevant forms to complete.  All of our patients are registered with the practice as opposed to an individual doctor. Patients may however, express a preference of doctor which will be included on the registration forms – we do not guarantee that you will always see that particular Doctor however, especially if you request a same day appointment.

Practice Area

We provide services to the following areas – west of river Usk, south of A40 to Llanellen, Goytre, Coed-y-paen, New Inn, Pontypool, Trevethin, Pontnewynydd, up to Pentwyn, Snatchwood as far as B4246, Pantygasseg and Cefn Crib as far as junction between A472 and old Crumlin Road, Griffithstown, Sebastapol as far as roundabout on A4051 leading to Avondale Road.

Change of Address / Telephone Number

If you move house - please let us know. We hope that you do not move too far away, as we would like to continue to provide care for you. However, if you move to an address which is outside of our practice area then we will unfortunately have to ask you to register with another practice. Please also notify us if you change your telephone number.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
