New Patients

Register as New Patient

Selsey Medical Practice welcomes new patients who live within our catchment area. To check whether you are in our catchment please use the interactive map below. We do not accept registrations from patients outside our area.

We are using a new online service called Register with a GP surgery that makes it easy for new patients to register with us.

Just fill in the quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.

The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.

Please contact reception if you require a paper registration form.

Catchment Area

The Map shows the area which is served by Selsey Medical Practice. Any residents living in this area may register with our practice.

If you live beyond the purple boundary area, you need to register with one of the other ChAMP practices. You can find details of these by clicking this link.

If you move from Selsey to another area, please register as quickly as possible with your new local practice so that your medical record is appropriately transferred and the continuity of your care can be maintained.

Allocation of Named GP

All patients are allocated a named accountable 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 Patients

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 treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days if you are in urgent need. If you require emergency treatment you should call 999.

You can contact your own GP for medical assistance, they may be able to help you remotely. Prescriptions can be sent electronically to any local pharmacy. It is often safer for you to contact your own GP as they have full access to your medical history. 

Other options are available for you including 111, the local urgent treatment centre and local pharmacists. Our reception teams will be happy to provide you with information on local services. 

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. If you require a registration for longer than three months you will be registered as a permanent patient.
