New Patient Registration

To be eligible to register at the practice, you must live within the practice catchment area.

Currently our boundary encompasses Tonbridge (north of the river Medway), Hildenborough, Leigh, Weald, the Tonbridge side of Hadlow, Underriver, Shipbourne, Chiddingstone Causeway and homes within this area (see map below).

Register using the link below. Please ensure this is done before making an appointment, unless it is an emergency. You will then be added onto our computer system and we would suggest leaving at least one week before you make an appointment. This will enable the medical team to use the computer system when they see you, and potentially have access to the electronic notes from your previous surgery.

As it often takes some time for paper records to be forwarded from your former practice all new patients are asked to complete a health questionnaire.  Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact our Care Navigators for further information.

To register with this practice please check you live within our practice boundary.

If you do then the registration forms will be made available for you to complete online.


If you wish to register with our practice, you should complete the form as above.

Once registered you will be able to make appointments – please allow at least one week.

Appointments and prescriptions can be requested online. Sign up to the NHS App.

Your Named GP

The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Your named GP will not be available at all times.

If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the Care Navigators when you are next in the surgery.

Temporary Services

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a Doctor but need to see one, you can be seen as a temporary patient.

You can register as a temporary resident if you plan to live near the GP surgery for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local Practice list but still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to apply to register with that surgery as a permanent resident.

You only need to contact us when you require treatment, you do not need to pre register. 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.
