How to Register

We regret we are only able to accept new registrations for patients who are new to the area, and who are not already registered with a local doctor.

Please visit to register between 11am and 5pm when we are somewhat quieter.


Harborough Field Surgery serves the whole of Rushden and Higham Ferrers covering the NN10 postcode area except for those residing in the County of Bedfordshire e.g. Wymington.  We do not accept new patients residing outside of this area.  Our team includes seven GPs, a Clinical Nurse Manager, Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses, Nursing Assistants as well as our Business Manager, reception and administrative staff.


We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children and pregnant women, diabetes and asthma sufferers and for patients needing minor surgery.  At Harborough Field Surgery we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.


If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please print and complete the registration form, and basic health questionnaire on the next tab to bring to the surgery, along with identification documentation (see below).  It would also be helpful if you would bring along your medical card if available.  You will be registering with the practice rather than an individual doctor.  However, when making an appointment, you may specify that you wish to see a particular doctor, and this will of course only be subject to availability.


In order for us to register you as a patient, we will require sight of identification and address confirmation documentation, to establish whether you are entitled to full or temporary registration.  This will also enable us to confirm whether you are entitled to free NHS treatment.  For permanent English residents such documentation would include photo identification such as a passport or driving licence, and a utility bill dated within the last 6 months.  Specific documentation requirements are available from reception for other applicants such as asylum seekers, overseas workers, overseas students, overseas visitors etc...


Until such time that your eligibility for NHS treatment is confirmed you will be treated as a private patient.  If it is determined you are eligible for NHS treatment you will be able to claim a refund of any charges we have made to you from the date that you became eligible.


However, there will be no charge levied for anyone requiring emergency or immediately necessary treatment; or maternity care.
