If you are new to our practice area, and wish to register yourself and your family at Measham Medical Unit, we would like to make this as straightforward as possible.
Please come to the enquiries desk Monday to Friday 08:00 – 18:00 to collect the relevant registrations forms.
The paperwork only takes a few minutes of your time to complete, either at the surgery or at home.
Patients over the age of 16 are required by our CCG to bring suitable identification when they come to register with us. Click here for a full list.
You only need to make an appointment with the doctor if you have been prescribed a repeat prescription from your previous Doctor.
You can see any of our partners, but please remember that some of them do not work full time, you may have to wait longer for an appointment. We advise that you stay with the doctor you have chosen, wherever possible for a particular problem, otherwise you may spend more time going over old ground with each new doctor.
At the Medical Unit disabled access is provided by ramps to the front and rear doors of the Unit. The front doors open automatically. A disabled parking space is provided at the nearest position to these doors. Companions of patients with limited mobility can collect a wheelchair from the entrance of the Unit to help the patient into the surgery. The enquiries hatch has audio assistance for patients who are hard of hearing. There is a disabled toilet, though not quite up to the latest standards.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
If you wish for someone else (i.e a relative) to be able to discuss your medical records, including being given access to your test results & appointment information you will need to complete a consent form for this.
You can either collect a form from reception; complete sign and return it to us or you can download the document below; print, complete, sign and send in to us so that we can update your records and discuss any information from your medical records with a third party.
The form also contains your contact preferences, carer details (if applicable) and details of your Next of Kin for completion to help us provide the best possible care for you.
Patient Contact, Consent, Carers & Next of Kin Form
Next of Kin
Your medical next of kin is someone you nominate to receive information about your medical care. If you have not chosen a next of kin, it will usually be assumed to be a close blood relative, spouse or civil partner. They will be kept informed about your care.

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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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.
