Register as New Patient
Selsey Medical Practice welcomes new patients who live within our area. We have an open list and accept patients living within Selsey and the surrounding areas including Sidlesham and Highleigh.
New patients are required to complete registration forms, which will notify MEDICAL RECORDS of your transfer to our practice and help us to ensure your details are up to date.
A form of photographic identification is required for registration as well as a proof of current address. Full details of the requirements are all in the New Patient Pack.
You will be registered with Selsey Medical Practice and you will have access to consult with any of our doctors and clinicians when you make an appointment.

Please contact reception for further information.
Allocation of Named GP
All patients are allocated a named GP who is administratively responsible for their overall care at the practice. If you wish to know who your named GP is please contact the practice. If you have a preference as to which GP this is, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
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.
