New Patients

Register as New Patient

We are currently taking on new patients who are living within the Halling and Cuxton area. To register with us you can either come in to one of our surgeries and collect a new patient registration pack or click below to download the forms to complete.

We ask that you return the forms to reception in person. If you would like to use online services, such as the NHS App to access your medical records or to order your repeat medication we will request to see you with a form of photo ID when you hand in your registration form, so that we can set this up for you. If you do have any repeat medications, please ensure you have a 4 week supply from your previous GP before handing in your registration form. It can take a time for your records to come over to us, however if you can supply us with a list of your repeat medications from your previous GP we can add this to our records to endeavour to ensure that your medications are not disrupted in your transfer to our practice.

Named Accountable GP

All patients at Riverside Medical Practice are allocated a named accountable GP. Where patients do not express a preference, their named accountable GP will be the GP they are registered with. If you know who you are registered with but would prefer a different GP to be your accountable GP please advise the Practice and your records can be amended.

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill while away from home or need to access a GP service and are in Halling or Cuxton temporarily (for longer than 24 hours and up to three months) you can be registered as a temporary patient. This will allow you to be on our Practice List and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will need to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with us. 

To register as a temporary patient with us please call reception and one of our receptionists will be able to advise you. You will be required to complete a temporary registration form before using our services.

You cannot register as a temporary patient at a Practice in the town or area where you are already registered with a GP.

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.
