New Patients

Register as a New Patient

When registering with the Practice certain documentation is required.

  • A medical card or a GMS1 form which can be obtained from reception (or downloaded below), to be filled in for each member of the family.
  • Two proofs of address and proof of identification are required, for details please see ‘New Patient Registration Guidelines' below.
  • We will also ask you to fill in a brief questionnaire (see below).

Registration times are held daily between 11:00 and 16:00

You can download and print these forms from this page and then bring in the relevant documents to the surgery when you register.

Practice Area

Our Practice covers the following locations in Milton Keynes:

  • Shenley Church End
  • Loughton
  • Shenley Brook End
  • Crownhill
  • Shenley Lodge

You can only register with the Watling Vale Medical Centre if you live in one of these areas. Please be aware that we do not register patients from the Fairfields or Whitehouse Park estates.


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.

Non-English Speakers

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.
