Watlington & Chalgrove Surgeries

Registering with the Practice

You can register with the Practice if you reside in our geographical Practice area. We can accept patients within the area which is roughly bordered by Chalgrove, Ewelme, Watlington, Lewknor and Tetsworth. (We DO NOT cover the villages beyond this including Stadhampton, Little Milton, or Aston Rowant).

Whilst in the past we have always tried to accommodate patients requests to remain registered at our surgery, due to local population growth, regrettably we are now unable to care for patients outside of our designated area. If there is any doubt or dispute regarding your current address, we will ask for the evidence from the list detailed below.

If you move outside the practice area, you will need to register with a Practice that covers your address location. It is important that your health needs can be safely and effectively provided by a GP Practice close to your residential address.

Click here and put your postcode into the postcode finder to see if you live within our catchment area.

University students or school boarders should register at the Boarding School/University they are attending. They can re-register with the surgery when/if they return permanently to the family address when the course ends.

If you are uncertain, please ask a Receptionist.

You can register by coming in to the Practice to see a Receptionist or online – see link below. You will be asked to complete a registration form and a new patient questionnaire. The questionnaire gives us some basic information about you and your health which will enable us to care for you effectively until your records arrive from your previous GP.

Emergency Treatment

Emergency Treatment

If you fall ill while on holiday you can receive emergency treatment from a GP surgery in the local area where you are staying.  You will need to register as a temporary resident if you’re in the area for longer than 24 hours but less than three months.

If you are staying in the area for longer than three months you will have to re-register again as a temporary patient.

You cannot register as a temporary patient at a Practice in the town or residential area where you are already registered as a permanent patient.

To register with the surgery please contact us.
