Join the Practice

Register as a New Patient

To register with the practice please call in and ask for a registration pack. Alternatively you can download one here.

You must have some photographic ID when registering.  This is a Health Authority requirement. Your registration will then be sent to the Health Authority for approval along with a request to your old GP surgery in order for your previous medical records to be sent to us. 

You will be asked as part of the registration process to make an appointment with one of our Healthcare Assistants for a new patient check. You do not need to wait for this to happen before asking to see a GP.


Ramsey Group Practice now has full disability access.


Temporary Registrations

A person shall be regarded as temporarily resident in a place if, when they arrive in that place, they intend to stay there for more than 24 hours but not more than six months.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to six 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.

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.
