Register as a New Patient
Welcome to Firs House Surgery. You can find out more about our surgery in the booklet.
Please download and complete the GMS1 registration form from the links below. We need a completed form for each patient registering. Hard copies are also available from reception at either site, Firs House in Histon or Telegraph Street in Cottenham.
To process your new registration we need your your NHS number. If you do not have this please contact the last practice you were registered with. If you don't have an NHS number we may be required to provide copies of identification documents to the registration authority but we will discuss this with you.
New care home residents are registered by the care home. Please use the link below provided for care home staff.
The inner red line on the map is our practice area. Patients living in this area are welcome to register with the practice. We cover Histon, Impington, Cottenham, Oakington, Westwick, Landbeach and Rampton. We also cover parts of Girton.
We were asked to add a new outer boundary. If a registered patient moves out of our practice area, but now lives within the outer boundary (which is marked by the shaded light blue background) they are able to stay registered with the practice. Please note - the new outer practice boundary is for our existing patients only. We are unable to accept new patients who live outside the inner boundary but within the outer boundary.
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.
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.
