We have an open list and welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to the practice area. Please click here to see the practice area.
The practice catchment area consists of the Egremont and Cleator Moor areas. Anyone residing in this area is able to register with the practice. The practice is able to take on patients from other area only if there is capacity to do so.
You can register by completing a form available from reception. To save time you can also download and print a registration form. You will need to complete this by hand and bring it to the surgery.
You will have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating your care. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.
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 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.
