Register as New Patient
We accept new patients who live within our patient coverage boundaries, that is 1.5 miles away from our surgery. Please call in to either surgery and a member of staff will be able to advise you.
If you do not live within our 1.5 mile radius, then please contact the PCT on 0161 212 4000 and they will be able to find you a GP nearer to your home.
Sorrel Bank Medical Practice Boundaries
As of 1st July 2010 NHS Salford CCG, formally known as NHS Salford Primary Care Trust, asked that we restrict our boundaries.
This means that we can no longer cover the following areas:
Bolton - Bury - Oldham - Wigan - Manchester
We can only visit within a 1.5 mile radius of the surgery, so some people in the following areas will be out of our range:
Walkden - Worsley - Little Hulton - Boothstown
If you are affected by these boundary changes, please telephone the PCT on 0161 212 4000 for advice on finding a new GP nearer to where you live.
The Practice would like to apologise for any inconvenience that may cause patients.
New Patient Registration Forms
Please complete both forms (New Patient Registration Form & Family Doctor Services Registration GMS1 V2) to apply to become a patient at our practice.
Once the Registration Forms have been completed please click submit form.
An appointment also needs to have been booked for your New Patient Health Check with one of our Nurses.
Please Note: We cannot complete your registration until you have completed the forms and provided the surgery with photo ID and proof of address.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill whilst 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.
