New Patient Registration
You do not need proof of ID to register with a GP, but it might help of you have one or more of the following:
- birth certificate
- HC2 certificate
- rough sleepers’ identity badge
- hostel or accommodation registration or mail forwarding letter
If you’re homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend’s address, a day centre or the GP surgery address.
If you need help registering with our Surgery
If you need help registering or filling in forms, call the GP surgery and let us know.
- You could also ask for help from:
- local organisations – for example if you’re homeless you could ask a centre that supports homeless people
- Citizens Advice
- your local Healthwatch
Useful Registration Information for Vulnerable Groups
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
We welcome new patients who live in Tilbury and Grays postcode areas of RM16, RM17 and RM18 only.
If you wish to register with us you can do so during normal opening hours.
Come to the surgery and ask to complete a registration form.
Named accountable GP: You will be assigned to a doctor who will be your "named Accountable GP" as required by the NHS, however, you can choose to be seen by any clinician as long as they are available.
You will be added to the practice list, not an individual doctor. You can ask to be seen by any of the doctors in the practice although it will not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice on a particular day and time.
