Register as a New Patient
We are currently unable to accept registrations from patients who live outside our registration area, or retain patients who move outside our area. We may review this, but at the moment due to capacity we are only able to accept registrations from patients moving into our area.
If you wish to register with us, please visit our surgery and speak to our reception staff to collect the relevant forms. Please be aware that patients must come into the surgery in person with photo ID and evidence of address to register.

As a guide, we cover the area in and between Cricklade, Minety, Ashton Keynes, Down Ampney, Marston Meysey and Castle Eaton.
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.
Named Accountable GP
All patients registered with Cricklade Surgery will have Dr Lanil de Silva as their named accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice.
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.
