Register as a New Patient
Patients living within the practice area are welcome to register and our reception staff can confirm your eligibility from your postcode. In this respect please bring along proof of address such as a recent utility bill.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. If you wish to pre-register click on the links below to open the forms. When you have completed all of the details, click on the "Submit" button to mail your form to us. When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to sign the form to confirm that the details are correct.
When you register with the practice you will be given the name of your allocated GP who will be responsible for your care going forward.
When you ring to make an appointment please reques your allocated GP.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
New Registrations from 25/10/22
Dalton Terrace Surgery is currently installing a new electronic patient record system called System One, which will bring substancial benefits for both patients and staff.
This will involve the transfer of a large amount of data between the old system and the new system, and to ensure that this is completed in a secure manner it will be necessary to pause certain functions temporarily.
One of these is registration of new patients which we are suspending until 12th December 2022.
Patients have the option to remain at their present GP practice until after the 12th December and then register with us, or they may register at another GP practice in York.
Details of other practices are available by accessing the NHS Choices Website and using the " Find a GP " facility.
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.
