Register as New Patient
To register at the practice please ask at reception where you will be provided with a registration form or you can complete the online registration form.
A patient questionnaire will also be provided which asks questions about your health and previous medical history. You will be asked if you have a preferred doctor and this preference will be recorded on medical records, though you may of course see any member of the health care team.
The receptionist will offer you an invite for a health check with a member of the nursing team and annual health checks at specific clinics should you suffer with certain illnesses.
South Grange Medical Centre and Lagan Surgery's catchment area is spread from Middlesbrough to Marske-by-the-Sea. The Surgeries operate from purpose built premises across both sites, one in Eston and the other from Redcar. Patients can be seen at either Practice.
Pre-Registration with the Practice
If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
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.
