If you would like to register online with Upperthorpe or Eccelsall Medical Centre you can start by reading our pre-registration section below. If you would prefer to register in person you can grab a registration form from reception or download a new patient registration form and a patient questionaire adult form, print and fill them in and bring them down to reception once completed.
Online 'Pre-Registration' With The Practice
Before you register with us please check you are within our catchment area by putting your postcode in the box below using the interactive map. If you are then click on the below link to start your online registration.
Outside of our catchment Area?
If you are unsure whether your address is within our boundary please check by entering your postcode in the box above.
If you live outside of our boundary but wish to register, as of 1st January 2022 we will no longer be accepting registrations for patients who live outside the marked area. This also includes patients who currently are on the 'Out of Area' scheme and move to another address which is still outside our boundary.
This also includes patients returning home after studying and living away at university, they will now have to be seen at a practice nearer their location.
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.
