Register as a New Patient
Please complete the online registration forms below. If you are just registering to be a patient at St Peter's Medical Centre, there is no need to provide us with any proof of ID. However, if you wish to access our online systems to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions or have access to your medical records, we will have to ask you to provide proof of identity to process your request. You can provide this either by emailing proof in or coming into the practice. The doctors do not operate personal lists and you will be registered with the practice rather than a specific doctor.
The practice boundary extends as far west as Montpelier Road and Seven Dials, it continues along Chatham place and New England Hill to Preston Circus and along Preston Road to Withdean Park. The northern boundary extends along Peacock Lane and Surrenden Road to Ditchling Road. To the east, our area includes Hollingdean and Moulsecoomb, Whitehawk, Roedean and The Marina.
Please note: Coldean, Falmer, Patcham, Woodingdean and Bevendean are not within our area.

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.
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.
