Register as New Patient
The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
If you wish to register with us you will be asked to complete a form giving us details of your previous address and GP. You will be offered an appointment with the practice nurse for a new patient check and asked to complete a new patient questionnaire.
Please contact reception for further information.
The area over which patients are accepted is Heanor, Langley Mill, Aldercar, Loscoe and Shipley. There are a few patients in Ilkeston (Cotmanhay, Summerfields and Shipley View Estates), Smalley, Codnor and Waingroves, but we do not accept newly registering patients for these areas. In addition existing patients of ours moving into these areas will have to change to a more local doctor.
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.

Disabled Patient Facilities
The Park Surgery is committed to providing services that are equally accessible to all patients. Attempts have been made to enable access for everyone, including those who may have some disability. If, however, you have a personal problem regarding access, please do not hesitate to inform a member of staff and we will put measures in place to resolve it for you.
There are automatic doors installed at the entrance to the surgery.
The Practice has disabled toilet facilities.
There is a hearing loop installed at the Surgery for hearing impaired patients. We also have a portable hearing loop that can be used in the Consultation Room. Please let the doctor know if this would be helpful.
Assistance Dogs are welcome to have access to all areas of the Practice.
