Registering with Us

Practice Catchment Area

Our practice area map is shown with our catchment area marked in blue - Click on the map for a larger view.

Please contact the surgery to confirm that you live within our catchment area.

Should you move outside this area, please notify us as you may need to register with a doctor closer to your new address.

For further information please contact reception.

How to Register as a Patient

If you live in our practice catchment area (see above) you can join our list. 

To register please visit the surgery with the following information:

  • Your NHS Medical Card. If you do not have an NHS Medical Card please complete a GMSGPR 001 Permanent Patient Registration form.
  • A completed New Patient Questionnaire (allows us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to this one).
  • Proof of ID (e.g. passport or photographic driving licence).

Our registration forms can be downloaded from the Registration Forms section of this page, or ask reception for paper copies.

If you move out of the practice area you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move.  We can provide information about how to find a new practice.

Temporary Residents

Patients visiting from another area in the UK for a period of less than 3 months, and who become unwell, are entitled to be seen as a temporary resident. You will be able to make an appointment in the same way as one of our normally registered patients.

If you only require a supply of your regular medication and you are normally resident in Scotland, it may be possible to obtain this from a local pharmacy under the "unscheduled care" scheme. This will avoid any delay whilst waiting for a GP appointment. If you are ordinarily resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, it still may be possible for a pharmacist to liaise directly with your usual GP in order to arrange medication.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
