New Patient Applications

How do I register and how long will it take?

We welcome all new patient applications from people living in Lichfield, Burntwood and some surrounding areas (see our full list in the practice area section below). All applications can be completed quickly and easily using our online registration form. Online applications can take as little as 48 hours for you to be registered with the practice.  Once you have completed the form you will receive two notifications, the first confirming that we have received your application and then a second when your application has been accepted and you are registered with the practice.

Please provide as much accurate information as possible on your application form.  The more information we have, the quicker we can get you registered.  If for any reason we require more information from you, or if we have any issues with the application we will contact you.

If for any reason you are unable to compete the online form, we do still accept a small number of paper applications. Please be aware that we have recently seen an increased number of patients requesting to register with us, so whilst we usually aim to register patients within 48 hours of their paper application, the recent increase in applications means that at times you may need to allow up to 7 days.  We recommend that if you are on repeat medications you ensure you have at least one months supply.

Which Doctor will I see?

Upon registration you will be given a "named GP" but you have the flexibility of consulting with any of the other doctors at the practice.  However, we recommend you see the same doctor for any on-going medical matters to ensure continuity of care. 

Please ensure you have 4 weeks medication available before registering to avoid any gaps in medication ordering

Information for Burntwood Health and Wellbeing Centre patients

We are one of three practices working with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Board (ICB) to register patients from Burntwood Health and Wellbeing Centre (BHWC) which is due to close on 31st March 2024.

The ICB has informed us that BHWC patients are being reminded to register with an alternative local practice as soon as possible to ensure that care can continue with a GP of your choice.  Patients will no longer be registered at BHWC after 31 March 2024.

We are advised that from January 2024, patients will start to be allocated to one of three practices to ensure that they have access to services after the end of March 2024.  The three practices are:

  • Darwin Medical Practice
  • Salters Meadow Medical Centre
  • Langton Health Centre (Boney Hay branch site)

However, patients still have a choice to register at an alternative practice if they wish.

If you have a preferred practice, we would encourage you to register with a new practice as soon as possible to avoid being allocated to a practice that is not your preferred choice.

To register with a new GP practice, patients should contact the practice they want to register with. Alternatively, patients can find a nearby surgery using the NHS services directory at Find a GP - NHS ( This website gives further information about the practices, like opening hours and patient satisfaction survey results.

Further information including frequently asked questions can be found on the ICS website.

Don't know your NHS Number?

It's really helpful if we have your NHS Number when you register as a new patient.  Don't worry if you don't know it! You can find your NHS Number on the NHS App or on the NHS Website

How do I get online access?

We recommend that all our patients register for online access as this enables you to see your care record, book appointments and order repeat medication via the NHS app or website. 

Once your registration application has been approved and you have received a notification welcoming you to the practice you can apply for online access. You will need to fill out the online access form via the link below and bring this into one of our Surgeries with photo ID. Our Reception team will then enable online access for you and provide you with a key to enable you to link your NHS app to your online account.





Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill while away from home you can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to still remain a patient of your permanent GP.  If you find that your stay in this area continues and you need to be registered with us for longer than 3 months you would need to register permanently and then re-register with your original GP when you return to your home area. 

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.

Unfortunately we cannot accept online registrations for temporary patients. Please visit one of our 3 branches. 

Disabled Patient Facilities

The Practice has done its utmost to be easily accessible and user friendly for those patients with mobility issues or who are wheelchair bound.

We have wheelchair-friendly parking spaces and disabled toilet facilities at all of our branches. 

A wheelchair is available for those with difficulty in walking at some branches. If you require assistance please speak to our receptionists who will do their best to assist you.

We also have a portable loops system on reception for patients that are hard of hearing or are deaf.

The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) aims to ensure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand, for example, in large print, Braille or via email and professional communication support if they need it, for example from a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter.
