Register as a New Patient
If you live within our practice area (see below) you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. We also need one form of photographic ID if you require online access.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Online versions of these forms are available below.
In line with NHS England guidance children must be registered with a parent or legal guardian at the same address.
If you live outside of Tadcaster your prescriptions may go to our Dispensary rather than a chemist, please ask at reception for details.
When you register with the practice we ask that you book a 20 minute appointment with the Health Technician for a New Patient Medical. This will allow us to get some basic information about you onto our system e.g. blood pressure, height, weight and ongoing medical conditions. Children do not need to book one of these medicals.
IF YOU DECIDE TO APPLY USING THE FORMS BELOW PLEASE COMPLETE BOTH OF THEM AS OTHERWISE YOUR APPLICATION CANNOT BE PROCESSED.
We accept patients from Tadcaster and the surrounding villages including Appleton Roebuck, Barkston Ash, Church Fenton and Ulleskelf. Please contact reception for full details or click here to use our postcode checker tool.
Unfortunately we cannot accept new registrations from patients in Aberford, Acaster Selby, Bishopthorpe, Collingham, Copmanthorpe, Hutton Wandesley, Linton, Long Marston, Micklefield, Rufforth, Ryther, Sherburn in Elmet, South Milford, Tockwith or Wetherby. Patients currently on our list who move to Aberford, Sherburn In Elmet or Copmanthorpe may be able to remain registered with us (please check with the reception team) but other than these locations patients who leave the Tadcaster area will have to register with a more local GP.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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 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.
