When you attend the surgery to register with either of the two practices based here, you will be asked to complete a GP registration form and a new patient questionnaire form. These must be completed before you can make an appointment with a GP or nurse.
Alternatively please print and complete these forms and bring them to the surgery:
- Registration Application (GPR)
- New Patient Questionnaire (New Patient Questionnaire)
- Ethnicity Patient Form10 (Ethnicity Form)
Please present your completed forms at our reception desk. We will require to check I.D. when you hand in these forms. Acceptance on to a Practice List is as at the discretion of the Doctor.
PLEASE NOTE: You can only register at this Practice if you live in Postcode areas G3, G11 or G12.
Once you’ve been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the relevant Practice and you’ll be sent a new medical card. (Please refer to the Medical card section).
Your medical records may take up to several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
Patients Registering Permanently from Overseas
If you want to register with a GP and you are coming from overseas the Practices require 2 forms of identification before we can send your request to the Health Board. This is line with NHS recommendations to authenticate identity, prove identity and reduce fraudulent use of NHS care.
Examples of identification you can provide are as follows:
Passport – This can be requested to provide evidence of a person’s nationality (a valid driving licence or state ID card can also be accepted).
Contract of Employment/Letter from Employer – Overseas visitors who are working in Scotland can be asked to provide evidence such as a contract of employment, a wage slip or a letter from their employer.
Student ID/Letter from Education Facility – Those visiting Scotland for study purposes may be asked to provide satisfactory documentary evidence, such as a matriculation card or a letter from the University/College confirming attendance and the duration of the course.
Visas/Permits – Overseas visitors can also be asked to produce appropriate UKBA documentation to show that they are entitled to work, study or get married in the UK.
Marriage/Birth Certificates – Overseas visitors can be asked to produce appropriate certificates, such as marriage or birth certificates, to show those claiming exemption are the spouse, registered civil partner or dependent child of somebody who is exempt from NHS charges.
Pension documentation – UK War/War Widows pensioners and UK State pensioners who live overseas can be asked to show a pension book or a letter from either the Ministry of Defence or Department for Work and Pensions as evidence.
Proof of Residence – Those taking up permanent residence may be asked to provide evidence in the form of rental or mortgage agreements, utility bills, pay slips, council tax documents etc
Students in a full-time course of study at a University or other institute of further or higher education are exempt from NHS charges from their arrival in Scotland until, normally, one month after their course ends. This includes post graduate studies.
Non EEA/Swiss nationals
Any person, who is not an EEA/Swiss national, wishing to take up permanent residence in the UK must, if they do not fulfill an exemption category, either have a “no time limit” stamp in their passport or a letter from the UKBA confirming that permanent leave to remain has been granted.
PLEASE NOTE YOU WILL NOT BE REGISTERED IF YOU CANNOT PROVIDE THE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED.
