Register as a New Patient
All you need to do is print the first five forms below, complete and bring to the surgery, together with two forms of identification (see our Registration Policy for information on necessary ID). If registering a child aged 0-19, you must also complete the ‘My Child’s Immunisation History’ form below. We need all forms and identification before we can complete your registration or book an appointment.

All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Can I register at the practice as a temporary patient?
You can register at Morland House Surgery as a temporary patient for up to 3 months, which allows you to stay registered with your permanent GP at the same time. At the end of this period, you can apply to re-register with us as either a temporary or permanent patient.
We welcome temporary applications from anyone residing in the practice area (see above) for more than 24 hours and less than 3 months, although we cannot guarantee being able to grant registration to everyone. We will not be able to register you as a temporary patient if you are already registered at another practice in the area. We will, however, always offer immediately necessary primary care, regardless of your association to the practice. More details on this can be found below.
If you are going to be staying in the area for more than 3 months, we recommend that you register as a permanent patient, as this allows us access to your full medical record and we can assign you a “usual doctor”. This will ensure we can provide you with the most comprehensive care and greater continuity, which is particularly important if you are receiving treatment for a complex condition or multiple health problems.
What immediately necessary care do you provide?
Wherever it is deemed clinically necessary, Morland House Surgery will always provide emergency care to any patient, regardless of their association to the practice. This may be useful if you fall ill whilst away from home, or if you are not registered at the surgery for other reasons. We will provide follow up care for 14 days after initial treatment, after which time you will need to register as either a temporary or permanent patient.
What is my Summary Care Record (SCR) and what choice do I have about who has access?
Your Summary Care Record (SCR) is a short summary of your GP medical records. It tells other healthcare staff who care for you about the medicines you take and your allergies. This means they can give you better care if you need health care away from your usual doctor’s surgery, for example:
- In an emergency
- When you’re on holiday
- When your surgery is closed
- At an outpatients clinic.
This summary of your record can be shared electronically via:
- The Summary Care Record: used nationally across England
- The Oxfordshire Care Summary: used locally across Oxfordshire
Staff will ask your permission to look at your SCR (except in an emergency, where you are unconscious, for example) and only staff with the right levels of security clearance can access the system, so your information is secure.
SCRs improve care, but if you do not want to have one you can opt out by completing the form below. There are also some helpful links regarding registration at the practice below.
