New Patient Registration
We can register you as a patient if you live in Greater Huddersfield and are:
- Homeless or in emergency accommodation
- An asylum seeker
You can register by email, by post or by visiting the practice.
Registering by Post or in Person
You can visit the Whitehouse Centre so you can be given a new patient registration pack. Complete the pack and then you can post it to us or bring it in.
You can also ring us on 03330 436242 and we will send you a new patient registration pack. Complete the pack and post it to us or bring it in.

3. We explain in the guides which paperwork would be helpful for us. We can register people without paperwork but we have to be very accurate with names and details when we create new NHS records. Your documents really help us with this.
4. Anything else you think would help such as photographs of medicine packets would be good.
You need to scan in all the paperwork you have completed for registering by email and send by email to us at LCP.locala-WhitehouseCentre@nhs.net. Please note this is not a secure email connection.
You will receive a text message, within 5 days, when you are registered. You will then be contacted within 6 weeks by telephone for a new patient assessment. If you are unwell before then or need medicines, please call us.
If we cannot process your registration due to insufficient information we will telephone to try and resolve the problem. If we are still unable to process the registration we will write to you to explain that we have not been able to register you.
New patients are initially taken on for 12 months. After that date their registration will be reviewed with a view to transferring to a regular practice.
