How to register

To register as a patient with Altrincham Medical Practice you must live within our practice boundary.

Please complete BOTH these online forms to register:

New Patient Form (GMS1)

Patient Health Questionnaire (Adult)

Alternatively, you can print and complete the New Patient Form and Patient Health Questionnaire or request these from reception.

The completed forms plus proof of address and photo ID (recent utility bills, passport or a valid driving license are acceptable items) should be brought to the practice where the reception team will advise you on the process.

If you are taking medication, this information will usually be transferred to us electronically. However we may need to see evidence of your most recent prescription. Please ensure where possible you have enough medication from your last GP, in order to give us time to process your registration and issue your next prescription.

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.

Temporary patients

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.

If you are visiting and wish to see a GP at this practice, please contact our reception team on 0161 928 2424 and we will make the necessary arrangements.

If you were registered at this practice and have moved away i.e. university, college, it is likely that you will have been registered for GP services at your new address. When you return home for holiday periods you may need to complete a Temporary Services to register as a temporary patient.

Please see NHS guidance on how to register as a temporary resident with a GP or contact the patient services team via reception for further information.
