In line with NHS guidelines Biddlestone Health Group is now operating a telephone triage appointment system.

When you ring a receptionist will take your details and ask you breif reason about why you need to speak to a doctor, they will then arrange for the doctor to phone you back to discuss your symptoms and the best course of action.

Please note the doctor will try twice to make contact.

If you need to order your prescription you do this on our 24hour automated telephone line.  Please call 0191 2650785

Registration Form

As part of the registration process, you will also be asked to fill out a new patient medical questionnaire. This is because it can take considerable time for us to receive your medical records, and this will enable us to get a picture of your medical history. Forms can be downloaded from the links below:

Adult Health Questionnaire

Child Health Questionnaire

These then need to be brought to the surgery together with ID. You will need to bring 2 proofs of your current address from the last 3 months and photographic ID (i.e. passport or driving licence). Examples of suitable forms of ID can be found further down the page.

Proof of ID/Address

This practice has a policy to check the identification and residency of all newly registered patients. This is recommended by the Department of Health and is designed to reduce NHS fraud.

As part of the registration, process you will be asked to provide both photographic identification and proof of address from the list below. This list is in order of preferred documents but as a last resort you may have other document types that we haven’t listed that may also be acceptable:

Photographic ID:

ID Card
Driving License

Proof of Address:

Temporary Registration

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.
