New Patient Registrationregister_now_blue_sign

Due to high demand and staffing challenges, we can only register close family members of current patients and allocations from the Health Board. If you fall into one of these categories, in the first instance please contact reception on 0131 666 2121 to check you live within the practice area. A patient registration form will then be sent to you. You will be asked to complete the form for each person registering with the practice. In addition, all patients will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire, allowing us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to this one.

Due to the high volume of new patient registrations we are receiving it is important that you call 0131 666 2121 to make an appointment prior to returning your form. Do not attend the surgery without an appointment to register as you will be asked to leave and come back once you have an appointment.

 

When you come to your appointment please ensure you return the form in person along with your proof of address (which must be valid for the previous three months) and photo ID (e.g. passport, utility bill, NHS medical card if you have one) for all people over 16 years registering with you. Please be advised we cannot accept a driving license as proof of address if using as photo ID and vice versa. The two forms of ID must be different and we will not be able to accept your registration form if this is not provided at the same time. We do not require photo ID or proof address for persons under the age of 16 years old. Patients who come from outwith the European Union may be asked to provide additional forms of information.

 

If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move.  

Registrations forms should be returned Monday to Friday between the hours of 9.30am and 11.30am or between 1.45pm and 3.45pm. Please bring photo ID and proof of address for over 16s. 

Preference of Practitioner

Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. You can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor, for either all of your medical needs or on a case-by-case basis. This preference will be recorded in your medical records and we will do our best to respect your choice. However, not all doctors in the practice provide all the services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
