Register as New Patient
When moving from another GP practice to ours, patients will need to complete a practice new patient questionnaire, as well as a registration form which are available at reception. Alternatively you can complete the forms online by clicking on the links below - please ensure that you complete both forms. Once we have received them, you will be contacted by our Registrations Coordinator, who will ask you to attend the practice with your forms of identity and sign the registration forms. When you visit the practice, adult patients will be required to have their blood pressure taken at our machine in Reception for their patient record.
Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice, so it is advisable before you change practices that you ensure that you have sufficient repeat medication.
Access to online services is really useful for patients - if you wish to register for this at the same time, simply visit our home page after submitting your registration forms and complete the online services form also.
The practice area covers Swanley, Hextable, Crockenhill, Farningham, Eynsford. Please click on the image opposite to use our postcode checker tool.

For those that have not registered with a GP before, you do not need proof of ID, but it might help if you have one or more of the following:
- birth certificate
- HC2 certificate
- rough sleepers' identity badge
- hostel or accommodation registration or mail forwarding letter.
If you are homeless,you can give a temporary address, such as a patient's address, a day centre etc....
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.
