Registrations

The practice is currently operating a restricted list. We are only taking patients from the following categories.

  • New babies of existing patients.
  • Immediate family members of existing patients who become resident within the registered patient’s address.
  • Temporary residents.
  • Patients assigned by the health board.

If you do not fall into any of the above categories then please call practitioner services on 0131 275 6000, they will allocate you a practice within your area.

Patients wishing to register should hand in medical cards for all family members and complete Form GPR for each person. In the absence of medical cards a copy of your birth certificate is required.  All patients are required to bring proof of address and photographic ID when registering.

Patients aged 18 and over will be given a New Patient Questionnaire to complete and all new patients will be invited to attend a consultation with one of the practice nurses or a GP. This enables us to give you a health check and gives you the opportunity to discuss any health problems you may have.
