New Patients

Register as New Patient

We welcome requests for registration from patients living in or moving to Great, Upper and Lower Cambourne. You will be registered with one of the GP’s but you can see any of the doctors in the practice.

Registering is easy and you can do it in a number of ways:

  • If you have your NHS card – simply sign it, fill in your new Cambourne address and telephone number (landline and mobile) and send the card to us or bring it into the surgery. Please complete and return a new patient questionnaire for each adult and a child registration form for each child.
  • If you don’t have your NHS card – come into the surgery and fill in a NHS registration form and new patient questionnaire or child registration forms or pre-register by using the online forms below.

If you are taking regular medication you will be invited to make an appointment with one of our GP's. This will ensure that your repeat prescriptions are set up and you can get your medication without delay when you need it.

Visitors to Cambourne

If you are a visitor to Cambourne needing an emergency appointment please telephone us on 01954 282153.

Emergency treatment is free to everyone, regardless of nationality or immigration status.

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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
